Pssst! All fans of The Hobbit! And lovers of fantasy, in general...

My latest offering for "Project Kaitlyn" (stories for my niece) is an unabridged reading of The Marvellous Land of Snergs (1927) by E.A. Wyke-Smith, which J.R.R. Tolkien read to his children and acknowledged as a sourcebook for his The Hobbit. This is a most clever and delightful story. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Take Tolkien’s: “I should like to register my own love and my children’s love of E.A. Wyke-Smith’s Marvellous Land of Snergs...”

Snergs 7
Hi, thanks so much for creating this! I've started to listen and it is very well done.

But I cannot download Part 7. Actually, I cannot download any parts from the first "here" links, but I was able to download all parts except part 7 from the 2nd "here" links.

Could you check Part 7 and re-upload if there is an issue? I would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, thanks so much for listening!

I'm sorry you're having trouble with some of these links, and I greatly appreciate the heads up about it. I'll check them right now. For the moment, here's an alternate link for Part 7. Please let me know if you have any problems with it.

Thanks again!
