New Tolkien Book to be Published

Over thirty years after his death, a new, unfinished work by the British author of The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien, is scheduled to be published. The Children of Hurin will appear in the United States and Britain in the spring of 2007.

Tolkien's son Christopher has been working on the book for over 30 years. Excerpts have been published before, but this will be the first time that the longer version of the work will appear in print.
