Major Road Ahead

From Tolkien Gateway

Major Road Ahead was a hero — a figure in a "long-running family epic" told by J.R.R. Tolkien to his children. The stories "revolved around the tireless efforts of Major Road Ahead to prosecute the villain", Bill Stickers.[1]

Inspiration[edit]

The stories about Major Road Ahead and Bill Stickers were only told orally (possibly around 1926 and 1930[2]), and have thus not been recorded,[3] unlike, for example, Roverandom and Letters from Father Christmas.
