Tolkien Companion and Guide: 2017 edition

A vital new book for Tolkien scholarship, due in 2017…

“Hammond + Scull’s revised edition of their Tolkien Companion and Guide. It will be three physical books total, with the Reader’s Guide being split into two. The ISBN for this set is 9780008214548.”

Via Expressions of Substance.

I’d like to think that mine will also be out in late 2017, but don’t hold your breath. It’s at 100,000 words with my usual intensive footnotes and primary historical research (readers of my books of H.P. Lovecraft scholarship will know the approach), but still needs a summer of work on it. Possibly November February, but… ‘it’ll be done when it’s done’. Lots of new discoveries!
