Basically, what the hell is Appendix A and where can I get more of my LOTR fix? TIA.

I'm sorry, I hadn't seen this post until now.

After Return of the King there are a number of appendices. Some of them are boring stuff that you'd not likely want to read (proper pronounciation of Elvish words is for the hard-core Tolkien fan indeed), but some actually provide additional details/background for the characters and races. One of them goes into substantial detail regarding how the orcs mightily offended the dwarves and what ensued. I dont' want to spoil it for you, so I'll end it there.

Bottom line -- go to Return of the King, go to Appendices, and start reading whatever interests you.
