New Tolkien Book

I am incredibly excited about the upcoming release of the new book by J.R.R. Tolkien, given to us by its editor, and Tolkien's son, Christopher Tolkien.

I don't know how it is that I am just finding out about this; better late then never I suppose. I've read the short version of this story in the Silmarillion and the longer version in Unfinished Tales and remember being completely captivated and enthralled with the tragic tale. To have a full narrative version of the story is truly a gift.

Christopher Tolkien's life has been one of dedication to his father's legacy and also to his father's many fans. What better way could there be to wrap up nearly a lifetime of loving devotion. Thanks Christopher.
