Tolkien's NEW book

Hey to all the Tolkien fans (me included) just thought I inform you of the great new development...I for one can't wait to get my grubby hands on it...after LOTR I hope this is a hit...heres a snippet about events unfolding...

J.R.R. Tolkien Has a New Book Coming Out
Just because he's dead doesn't mean he doesn't have a new book coming out. A new, previously unpublished work by J.R.R. Tolkien will hit bookstores in April, 2007.


Houghton Mifflin has acquired U.S. rights to publish the first complete book by J.R.R. Tolkien since the posthumous Silmarillion in 1977. HM bought American rights to The Children of Hürin from HarperCollins UK, which acquired the project from The Tolkien Estate in a world rights deal. Hürin, begun in 1918, was reconstructed by Christopher Tolkien, painstakingly editing together the complete work from his father’s many drafts, this book is the culmination of a 30-year endeavor by him to bring J.R.R. Tolkien’s vast body of unpublished work to a wide audience. HM will publish Hürin in April 2007, on the same day as HarperCollins' international editions. Janet Silver, v-p and publisher of Houghton Mifflin, said, "As J.R.R. Tolkien's original American publisher, dating back to The Hobbit, we are extremely proudto be bringing thisproject to Tolkien's devoted readership in the United States."

Actually, we're quite happy that Christopher Tolkien is taking the time to ensure that all of his father's work is finally published.

Any event that yields new doors to the Perilous Realm is welcomed by me. Although I suspect that, like The Silmarillion, there is a reason Tolkien never published that book.
