J.R.R. Tolkien's unfinished work, The Children of Hurin, has been finished by his son and will go on sale April 17.

The book, started by Tolkien in 1918, is described as a story of epic adventure, tragedy, fellowship and heroism.

Chairman of the Tolkien Society, Chris Crawshaw said that "Tolkien saw his work as one long history of Middle Earth: from the beginning of creation to the end of the Third Age. The Children of Húrin is an early chapter in that bigger story."

If I knew I'd get some movie deal money for finishing someone else's book, I'd take a whip to those 1000 monkeys working on 1000 typewriters ASAP! (Cruelty to animals is never funny. Even funny animals like monkeys. Cruelty to human writers is encouraged)

Well, from the sound of things, if Christopher Tolkien had his way, there would never be any movies, games, or anything else made from Lord of the Rings or any other Middle-Earth stuff.

Tollkien seems as about as anal as Bill Watterson when it comes to licencing and merchandise. And Bill, if you're reading this-- I'm still waiting for my very own Hobbes plushtoy.
