Tolkien has this great quirk in his IRL writings where he sometimes talks about “finding” parts of his stories, as if he were not an author but merely the discoverer of Middle-Earth in some dusty archive.
Also, I’m glad he never really wrote about the Fourth Age because it sounds like it would’ve been (as he himself noted) a huge bummer.

Ugh. That sounds like a Frank Miller-esque turn for the worse.
