Children of Hurin comes out today. Suprisingly, the hype is minimal. (via SFBC)

Houghton Mifflin bought American rights to The Children of Húrin, some of which has been published in Unfinished Tales. This new version has been reconstructed and “painstakingly editing together” by Christopher Tolkien. Tolkienites, I hope this is a good thing for you. For the rest of us, the Wiki must provide.

The Scotsman has a fascinating article on the friendship between two of Britain’s most beloved literary figures.
CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien were the closest of friends, one struggling to make his fantasy world of Middle Earth a literary reality, the other trying to convince friends his first book about Narnia deserved to be published.
But new research has revealed that their friendship was riven by the most bitter and personal of rows on everything from literature to religion and even their choice of spouse.
The fascinating revelations about their real relationship have been made by film-maker Norman Stone while researching a new drama-documentary on the life of Lewis. Stone, who made the award-winning movie about Lewis, Shadowlands, talked to mutual friends of the literary pair as well as examining documents in minute detail.
The drama-documentary is scheduled to air on the Hallmark Channel in the US this December. The BBC is hoping to air it at the same time.
