I hadn't thought that one could actually fill in gaps in the actual story of The Lord of the Rings -- there are no gaps. But, to borrow a phrase from Lewis, there are other peoples' stories. And this is one of them -- a poignant behind-the-scenes look at one unusual character caught up in the siege of Minas Tirith, which takes another look at some of the events of that part of the story. Well worth a look at. And a winner in the 2003 Mithril Awards.
