Wow, Was I Surprised!
While perusing today's list of upcoming titles, I was startled to see the book at the right. Tolkien? Wouldn't they have emptied out that particular filing cabinet by now?
Guess not. The family of the legendary creator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy has edited the remaining manuscripts of J.R.R. Tolkien and they will be released in less than two weeks. All I can find out about the book is that it is a narrative of an earlier Middle Earth where we discover many of the origins of the orcs, sorcerers, fairies, dwarves, and elves who inhabit the world created by this most fertile imagination.
If you are a fiend for the Rings, you'll want to be the first to read this one. Give us a call or drop us a line to reserve your copy.
