New Tolkien? Oh wait.....right.....

By Vivien Cuttle. ABC's Articulate.

All those millions of J R R Tolkien fans out there suffering withdrawal symptoms from a lack of new films or books can now breathe easy.

Tolkien, the world-famous author of The Lord of the Rings, may have died more than 30 years ago, but that hasn't stopped his son (who is also his literary executor) from publishing his stories.

Children of Hurin already makes an appearance in The Silmarillion but this version pulls together parts from other, unpublished manuscripts.

The story follows Turin and his sister, Nienor, who are cursed by a dark lord called Morgoth.

It is set long before hobbits walked Middle Earth and is reportedly much darker than any of Tolkien's offerings so far.

I heard this on the radio this morning and had to txt Re to check he was dead. And yes, he is, thoroughly. I don't understand post-humous Publication of books, or release of music. Seems a bit weird.
