In the Halls of Nienna by Artaxastra

'"I need something made which has never been crafted since the beginning of the world," she said firmly. "I need an impossible Thing."' This conversation piece, set in Valinor, has an intriguing take on the problem of orcs (crossover with LotR)

Of Bombadil and Peredhel by Meir Brin

Not many authors dare to attempt Tom Bombadil's voice, but Meir Brin succeeds amazingly well here, and the reader is treated to Entwives as well. A real hoot!
