Series on Middle-earth Characters

You all might be interested in this series on Middle-earth characters by Megan N. Fontenot, published in Tor.com It includes essays on Gandalf, Galadriel, Melian, Fëanor (in 4 parts no less),Faramir, Sam Gamgee,Ulmo,Merry, Theoden, and Pippin. I just read the one on Pippin and enjoyed the depiction of his evolution through various of Tolkien's ms. drafts.

Hope everyone is doing okay out there.
