The Children of Hurin

Middle Earth stands alone as the greatest fantasy creation of all times. And it is no wonder that it lives on stronger than ever. It continues to grow, evolve, and spread its beauty in many different ways. There are two very big developments in the world of Middle Earth that you can enjoy and they are both being released this month.

Something old

The Children of Hurin NovelThe Children of Hurin by J.R.R. Tolkien - Yup that's right. It's a new book by the master himself. He began the work in 1918, and worked on it through many drafts but never finished it and never published it. His son Christopher, who himself was also a teacher at Oxford, has completed it.

It is scheduled for release on April 17 and you can now pre-order a copy either in hardcover or in limited deluxe hardcover.



Here's a quote from the Tolkien estate about the book:

"The story deals with a hero of the First Age, Húrin, of the race of Men, who is cursed by the Dark Lord Morgoth, and the effect this curse has on his children Túrin Turambar and Nienor.

The Children of Húrin takes the reader back to a time long before The Lord of the Rings, in an area of Middle-earth that was to be drowned before ever Hobbits appeared, and when the great enemy was still the fallen Vala, Morgoth, and Sauron only his lieutenant. This heroic romance is the tale of the Man, Húrin, who dared to defy Morgoth's force of evil, and his family's tragic destiny, as it follows his son Túrin Turambar's travails through the lost world of Beleriand."(The Tolkien Estate)

If you are a fan of Tolkien this is a must add to your collection.
