Well, that's something to genuinely look forward to; particularly more Silmarillion detail! As you've commented before; quite a lot has come to light since 1993 --& clearly there was much compression in the first edition in any case. At least two years you reckon? Still with (further) assistance from Doug? --or under your own byeline only (--or co-authoring with Christina)? Any radical format ideas, or just bringing up to date?

As for jackson’s "incomparable story-telling" - I can't wait for more dwarf-tossing jokes and wizard fights.

I imagine all the fan-sites will be abuzz with the news, and speculation will run wild as to who will be cast in the role of Bilbo. Personally I had hoped the whole thing would have died a slow, horrible death - but I guess there is just way too much potential cash on the table, what with all the "collectibles" and other rubbish that will inevitably accompany these movies.

if it will appear soon

The new edition is still at least two years away, I reckon.

“Jackson will utilize groundbreaking visual effects and his incomparable story-telling to bring J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel to the big screen. Both Hobbit movies will be filmed in Digital 3-D, using the latest camera and stereo technology to create a high quality, comfortable viewing experience. Jackson also co-wrote the screenplays with Fran Walsh, Phillipa Boyens and Guillermo del Toro."


I'm glad that they are able to use Jackson's incomparable story-telling skills for the film, to liven up what Hollywood thinks is a very dull book
