New Tolkien next month
The BBC reports (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/6494985.stm) that Christopher Tolkien finished his father’s last book, Children of Hurin, and it will be published in England, the United States, Australia and New Zealand this April 17. The younger Tolkien spent 30 years on the book, which JRR Tolkien started in 1918. Alan Lee is the illustrator.
There are no plans at this time for a film.
