9780048231796: Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle-Earth

Edited by Christopher Tolkien, Unfinished Tales is a posthumous collection of narratives ranging from the time of The Silmarillion - the Elder days of Middle-earth - to the end of the War of the Ring in The Lord of the Rings. Among the stories told are Gandalf's account of sending the dwarves to Bibo's party at Bag End, the tale of the appearance of the sea-god Ulmo before the eyes of Tuor along the coast of Beleriand, and a description of the military organization of the Riders of Rohan. It also contains the only story from the long ages of Numenor before its downfall, and all that is known of such matters as the Five Wizards, the Palantiri, and the legend of Amroth.

About the Author:

Christopher Tolkien, who formerly taught at Oxford University, is J.R.R. Tolkien's son and literary executor. The editor of The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales as well as the twelve-part series The History of Middle-earth, he lives in France.

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892–1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but even as he studied these classics he was creating a set of his own.
