I believe the intention is to release the Lord of The Rings one paragraph at a time in 2017.

Heehee, that was a good one Trotter.

Yeah I've seen promotional clips of the stage play and heard good things about it.

As for the story itself, it is quite thought-provoking, and I was quite confused the first time I read it :)

It is a £3.99 paperback, hopefully no Deluxe version for next year :)

The cover is from the stage-play and it is a tie-in with that.

"Published for the very first time in its own volume, Tolkien’s remarkable tale about a painter whose obsession with detail prevents him from finishing his great work.

Niggle is a painter. Not a very successful one, partly because he has so many other things to do. For some time he has been obsessed with one particular canvas – a curious picture of a tree with a vast landscape stretching out behind it. The painting keeps getting bigger and bigger, but Niggle has a journey to make.

In 1939 Tolkien was despairing of ever bringing his great work The Lord of the Rings to a conclusion. One morning he woke up with the story Leaf by Niggle complete in his mind and wrote it down. This poignant story, about an artist on a curious journey, is often seen as an allegory of the writer’s own creative process and life.

Published to coincide with a new touring stage production of the story, this is the first time the story has been published in its own volume, enabling readers to savour one of Tolkien’s most elegant, haunting and least-known short stories.
"

Publication Date 28th July 2016

Okay, now this seems more than a little ridiculous... Leaf by Niggle is getting its own release...
