You know when you go see the movies or read the books that those men, even though they're fighting for Sauron are probably not totally evil, maybe just mislead. I liked your lead character. His youth really showed when he talked about the fact that dying didn't matter because he'd seen "your" rivers, but "you" would never see "his."

Oh, nicely done! I love reading gap-fillers about minor characters, and this brought to life a whole culture I hadn't really spent much time thinking about. My only complaint is it's too short.

Ah, Greg's story. Greg, the Haradrim. He and Bob, the Rohirrim should have lunch sometime. This is a brilliant little story for a character who didn't get any lnes in the books but made his mark nonetheless. Sam wondered what he might have thought and why he might have fought and here Dwim tells us, shows us before he dies. He wonders at a fish and his friend is amazed by the rumor that men sometimes drown themselves, and you realize how rare and precious water is to these people. Brilliantly told!
