    Short people rule! Ever read Artemis Fowl? Plenty of short people there. And of course, the exceedingly short Nac Mac Feegle (Wee Free Men).

      I kind of half-read Artemis Fowl, if I’m honest. I must go back to it sometime.

    what books are numbers 4, 5 and 9 from? This is a good list concept, different from the usual “classic heroes” or “antiheroes” thing.

      Well, Gollum/Smeagol is Lord of the Rings 🙂 5 and 9 are both from Warcraft. Did you know what 10 is from?

        Sorry, I didn’t mean Gollum. Stupid me, I can’t count. I meant number three. And actually, I don’t know number 10, that one slipped away from me as well.

        I guess I’ve got my reading cut out for me 😀

          Aha 🙂 Gotrek Gurnisson is from Warhammer Fantasy, the Gotrek and Felix books. Number 10, Gilius Thunderhead, is the dwarf character from Golden Axe on the Sega.

    I totally agree with Tyrion being at the top of this list. 😀

    Lessa. While not a dwarf or halfling, she is markedly shorter than everyone else on Pern.
