Middle-Earth fans rejoice! J.R.R. Tolkien’s new book The Children of Hurin comes out today. The book was compiled from Tolkien’s notes and an almost-finished draft by his son Christopher.
From the AP:
As the tale begins, Morgoth has destroyed a vast army of elves and men and taken one of its leaders, Hurin, prisoner. The dark lord tries to bend Hurin to his will, but the great man defies him. So Morgoth pronounces a curse on Hurin’s children, Turin and his sister Nienor.
Hold your wad, here’s a sample from the book:
“In this way, before the summer had passed, the following of Turin had swelled to a great force, and the power of Angband was thrown back. Word of this came even to Nargothrond, and many there grew restless.”
I’m going Orc hunting after work. How ‘bout you?
