Hi, I read on your forum (February 2010) that some of you were intrigued by/interested in the Frisian translation. Welll... Actually, I am the translator. I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have on the book!

Oh WOW! A huge welcome and thanks for popping your head out of your round front-door!

I would love to get hold of a copy, but don't know how. I feel that this translation is very important and it should continue to be available.

I too would love a copy of the Frisian Tolkien. My wife is Mennonite and their dialect is based on Frisian.

I just found out the largest online book store of the Netherlands (bol.com) also sells the book. They should be able to help you without any difficulty. If you want to order a copy, cpoy this link inot your browser: http://www.bol.com/nl/s/algemeen/zoekresultaten/Ntt/popkema+hobbit/Ntk/media_all/Nty/1/N/0/Ne/0/search/true/searchType/qck/index.html?_requestid=37682

I might try and get a copy of this. I'm surprised I can actually read it a little bit. I don't think American's can buy from this site?
Is there or do you plan on doing a translation of Lord of the Rings?

If you have problems ordering at bol.com, please send an email to my publisher ([email protected]). She will then be able to help, I think.
It is not that surprising you should be able to read and understand some Frisian: it is after all the closest living linguistic relative to English - they are linguistic sisters, so to speak.
A Frisian translation of LotR is being made as we speak, but not by me (I am merely a consultant on the project). The first book is planned for this summer at, again, the Elikser publishing house. It will be awesome!
