Clovendell Press Releases “The Schnoz of the Rings”

John J. Osterhout, Professor of Chemistry at Angelo State University, announces the release of his book, “The Schnoz of the Rings: A Parody of J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.” Froyo Bagpants must throw the Schnozring into the fire pit of Mount Drool in order to save Central Oith from domination by the Great and Powerful Schnoz. Available in paperback and as a Kindle book from Amazon. More information about the book and its author on

Caroline McCullagh, writing in The Mensa Bulletin. says, "How could you possibly parody something so wonderful (as Tolkien's LOTR)? Well, he did, and he did a good job of it. What is interesting to me is that Osterhout has created something that has a life of it's own. I don't think you need to have read the trilogy to enjoy this book. He creates a world that parallels Tolkien's world, but it works on its own merit."

Lawerence E. Musgrove, professor of English, writing on Amazon, says “What would happen if Mel Brooks, Cheech and Chong, Monty Python, and Mad Magazine partnered on a parody of the Rings Trilogy? You’d have something very close to the Schnoz of the Rings. Spooferrific!”

Hmm. I haven't come across it yet, but by this description it seems it won't end up as dated as Bored of the Rings.
