I was not aware of that. Then I have never been a Tolkien fanboy. Lord of the Rings was an entertaining book, but not in my opinion in the running for greatest book ever in any list. So many of Tolkien's books may be thought of as having two authors JRR Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien, as well as in this case since the book was apparently never completed during JRR Tolkien's life an editor Verlyn Flieger as well?

So anyway those who really appreciate Tolkien may expect a new treat every few years?
