Q: Early 1950s Short Story/Novelette - "TK! TK! TK!"

Lee EckhardtI am pretty sure this short story/novelette appeared in Galaxy in the early 1950s; it was definitely in a magazine and not an anthology. (It isn't Telek by Jack Vance, although it sounds like it.) The main character is a 'TK' a telekinetic. At the beginning of the story someone tries to kill him ...

ShadeI think the title says it all: How was the sound for the Horn, blown by Gimli, in Helms Deep created in the film The Two Towers? If they created a big horn as a basis of the sound, I'd love to get a picture of it. The only answer I could find is from Quora and it ...
