So as to prevent the Wheel of Time thread from being further derailed, I'm making a Tolkien thread.
You probably know the man from Lord of the Rings. He also wrote some other stuff, much of which he never published. His son Christopher, however, has been releasing books about Tolkien's writings over the years however. You can learn a ton about the man's writing process and his mythology through them.
What's really cool, though, is there is a new JRRT book coming out this Spring, The Children of Hurin
. Parts of it have been published in The Silmarillion and other works, but this is going to be the full tale, told (supposedly) entirely in JRRT's own words. This is pretty exciting.
So this is a thread to talk about that, or anything else Tolkien. Preferably the books though.
