Reuters
reports that a "new" book by J.R.R. Tolkien goes on sale on Tuesday.
Tolkien's son and literary executor Christopher, now in his eighties,
constructed "The Children of Hurin" from his father's manuscripts, and
said he tried to do so "without any editorial invention".



Already told in fragmentary form in "The Silmarillion", which appeared
in 1977, the new book is darker than "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the
Rings", for which Tolkien is best known.



The story is set long before "The Lord of the Rings" in a part of
Middle-earth that was drowned before Hobbits ever appeared, and tells
the tragic tale of Turin and his sister Nienor who are cursed by
Morgoth, the first Dark Lord.



Hollywood studios are eager to buy the film rights of the new book,
according to David Brawn, director at Tolkien publisher HarperCollins.



"We all want this first and foremost to enjoy life as a book," said
Brawn. "No one's saying never to a film (but) the film rights are
reserved by the estate. We want to see what reaction it gets and then
let it run its course."



You can purchase the book at Amazon.
