Two "New" Tolkien Books

It's always exciting for those of us who are Tolkien fans to see announcements of new publications. Of course, when the author in question has been deceased for almost fifty years, the definition of the word "new" requires some nuancing. That is certainly the case with the two Tolkien books to be published in coming months.

The first is a new edition of the Silmarillion. Recently, Tolkien's publisher released an edition of Lord of the Rings with illustrations by the author. That is what is new about this edition of the Silmarillion.

The second forthcoming book is The Fall of Númenor. This work collects all of Tolkien's writings on the Second Age into one convenient resource. I will probably be reading this rather than watching Amazon's take on the Second Age.

Tolle lege!
