The Children of Hurin

Via GeekPress: The AP reports on a new Tolkien work to be published by Houghton Mifflin.

“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 new book will be published by Houghton Mifflin in the United States and HarperCollins in England.
