Hmmmmm.

Does it involve the Lord of the Nazgul and Aragorn calling each other 'sugar chops' or ' cuddle pot'?

I realize that doesn't mean that they couldn't make your life miserable for quite a while.
It is a shame, your concept sounds like a fun idea.

They absolutely totally would, and they can hire all the lawyers they want.

There's nothing in the statutes that specifies the infringer has to make a dime.

Your legal defense is "fair use", as a parodical treatment. Which by no means protects you from being sued. As they have already told you they won't grant permission, I think you'd be well served to write something else, or make your work more generic, not specifically tied by reference to Tolkien's work.

You sound like you've been burned in the past. I humbly bow to your superior knowledge on the subject.

Your book sounds very interesting. As I understand it, the dwarves in The Hobbit and LoTR are an allegory for the way Tolkien perceived plight of the Jews.
