Doesn't it make you all warm and fuzzy inside, Jarrod, knowing that Chris Tolkien keeps editing and publishing his daddy's work?

I still see nothing wrong with it.

Handing off all intellectual property to a competent relative is the best way to make sure the material doesn't just sit there, unread.

A friend of mine has declared all her intellectual property becomes mine if she ends up dead or something.

I often tell her shut the hell up and write the goddamned book.

J.R.R. Tolkien is the hardest working dead writer out there!

I didn't read Children of Hurin.  Was it any good?  Anyone read it?

Almost...it wasn't bad.  The story is told in an archaic narrative voice so if you can get past that you might enjoy it but then again I have friends that love the same kind of books I do but hated Hurin for that reason....all depends on you.  Personally I liked it because it had a way of telling a J.R.R. Tolkien novel without trying to be him.  It's not like Brian Herbert butchering Frank's Dune novels...

It takes place in the first age of men so you don't get any Hobbits in it.  It's a good background book to LOTR.

Tolkein is the Tu Pac of literary cirlces...
