RIP, Christopher Tolkien.

Christopher Tolkien had an odd destiny to fill, but I think that he reached it. Modern fantasy would look just a bit different without his steady, largely unheralded efforts. My condolences and prayers to his family and loved ones.

‘New’ book by ‘J.R.R.’ Tolkien coming out.

Air quotes deliberate: “If you’re a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth novels, you’ll be excited to hear that there’s a new unpublished book that will be released soon called The Fall of Gondolin. The book was edited and revised by Tolkien’s son Christopher.”  …or, more accurately: “Tolkien never actually wrote The Tale of Eärendel, but The Fall of Gondolin will contain Christopher’s best sketch of it based on his father’s outlines.”

OK, look.
