Postby Guest » Tue Nov 11, 2003 1:00 am

This just in from John Garth: <i>Readers of Tolkien Online might like to know that my book, Tolkien and the Great War: The Threshold of Middle-earth, has now been published by <a href="http://www.tolkien.co.uk/">HarperCollins</a>. It recounts Tolkien's experiences in the First World War, describes the building of his mythology; and tells the full story of his inspirational group of friends, the TCBS. Drawing extensively on his unpublished personal papers from this period, it is the first substantially new biography of Tolkien since 1977. AN Wilson, in the London Evening Standard, says: "This is very much the best book about JRR Tolkien that has yet been written...." His full review can be read <a href="http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/entertainment/books/articles/7609811?source=Evening%20Standard" target="_blank">here</a>.</i> You can also <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0618331298/theonering" target="_blank">preorder the book</a> (available Dec. 26) at Amazon.
