J.R.R Tolkien’s Latest Book – The Children of Hurin

J.R.R. Tolkien is coming out with a new book – The Children of Hurin. Amazon says this is  “The first complete book by J.R.R. Tolkien in three decades—since the publication of The Silmarillion in 1977”, which I think is fairly prolific for a dead author!

Actually it is an incomplete manuscript that has been finished  by Tolkien’s son  – Christopher Tolkien.

There is a three day on-line party to celebrate including the following contest:

  • Win the Deluxe edition of The Children of Hurin signed by Alan Lee and Christopher Tolkien. Just fill out this form and enter “Hurin” as the code and “signed” as the answer. Contest will run until April 17th.
  • The Children of Hurin date to the First Age of Middle Earth which is documented in a book called the Silmarillion. Hurin was a great warrior who fought the Orks. This is a sad story of what happens to his children.
