Apparently, there has been some controversy about that announcement, with some people claiming that it is an attempt to milk Tolkien's popularity. Poppycock! This is a valuable resource regarding and important aspect of Tolkien's scholarship, and about his influences as a writer.

That's the third time you've used "poppycock" today. We might have to restrict your access to that word unless and until you're able to prove that you can use that word responsibly.














:P

We could put it into the word changer and have it come out the other end as "Pish-tosh!"

But actually, I rather like "Poppycock!"

Interesting. Just Morgoth's Ring? Not any other volume of HoMe?

The book of Lost Tales 1 and 2 is already available as ebooks but no other parts of HoMe is.

I mentioned this in the Library thread about book collecting, but it should go here as well

An Illustrated Edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Unfinished Tales is Coming

There has never been an illustrated edition of Unfinished Tales, and so far as I know, there has never been a work with illustrations by all of arguably the three leading Tolkien artists, Alan Lee, John Howe and Ted Nasmith. As I said in the book collecting thread, I'm not usually one to collect different editions of the same book, but I might have to make an exception here.

If it doesn't turn out to be available in the U.S., I might have to get you to get me a copy!

Here is an interesting bit of news.

Quote:
We are delighted to announce the release of a brand-new audiobook of The Hobbit, read by award-winning actor, director and author Andy Serkis! This magical new recording arrives this September and is now available to pre-order:
In May, Andy Serkis embarked on his #Hobbitathon, a live, cover-to-cover reading of The Hobbit, in an 11-hour sitting with the intent to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts. Inhabiting each character as only he can, Andy’s narration enthralled more than 650,000 fans across the world as he took live storytelling to a new level, raising over £300,000 for charity.
Andy Serkis has donated his fee to The DEC (The Disasters Emergency Committee) who are providing global assistance to those countries seriously struggling with the effects of the pandemic. HarperCollins has matched Andy’s contribution.
