The last in a great series
am 10. Oktober 1998
In the twelfth and FINAL volume of The History of Middle Earth Christopher Tolkien answers many of the questions bothering Tolkien fans for a long time. The family trees of Hobbits, the names and activities of all the Dwarf houses, the language ability of the elves, the origin of Lembas, and other mysteries are finally revealed. Also included are two very interesting pieces. One is "The New Shadow", the beginning of a sequel to LOTR, and the other is "Tal-Elmar", a story telling of the coming of the Numenorean ships as sees by the men of Middle Earth. I recommend this for all Tolkien fans, and for those who have read the other HoME volumes, you don't want to miss this last, and best, edition. Finally, a thank you to Christopher Tolkien for allowing us one of the greatest literary experiences of our lives--we are forever in your debt.
