Last Word On Stoors


A Reader settles it:

I may put myself in the running for nerd of the (new) year here, but Stoors are a sub-type of hobbits. There were three types, characterized by their physical attributes and tastes (river folk, tree folk, etc). I think that Gollum’s folk are stated to be akin to hobbits, and Stoor-like in their habits, but it is not said definitively whether they are hobbits or not.
