Tolkien Returns

From WorldMagBlog: "While the world awaits news on the film future of The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien fans will have a new book to add to their library. Tolkien's son Christopher has spent the past 30 years working on "The Children of Hurin," another tale from the world of The Lord of The Rings. Incomplete versions of the story have been published in other collections. "It has seemed to me for a long time that there was a good case for presenting my father's long version of the legend of the 'Children of Hurin' as an independent work, between its own covers," Christopher Tolkien said in a statement. The complete work is set to be published in April 2007.
