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.

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.
