This is a rhetorical question - why should a description of a serious book about Tolkien begin with references to Peter Jackson?!

I'm officially disgruntled.

Looks like this book has finally been published

Green Suns and Faerie
Essays on J. R. R. Tolkien


Verlyn Flieger

A major contribution to the growing body of Tolkien scholarship

With the release of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy and forthcoming film version of The Hobbit, J. R. R. Tolkien’s popularity has never been higher. In Green Suns and Faërie, author Verlyn Flieger, one of world’s foremost Tolkien scholars, presents a selection of her best articles—some never before published—on a range of Tolkien topics.

The essays are divided into three distinct sections. The first explores Tolkien’s ideas of sub-creation–the making of a Secondary World and its relation to the real world, the second looks at Tolkien’s reconfiguration of the medieval story tradition, and the third places his work firmly within the context of the twentieth century and “modernist” literature. With discussions ranging from Tolkien’s concepts of the hero to the much-misunderstood nature of Bilbo’s last riddle in The Hobbit, Flieger reveals Tolkien as a man of both medieval learning and modern sensibility—one who is deeply engaged with the past and future, the regrets and hopes, the triumphs and tragedies, and above all the profound difficulties and dilemmas of his troubled century.

Taken in their entirety, these essays track a major scholar’s deepening understanding of the work of the master of fantasy. Green Suns and Faërie is sure to become a cornerstone of Tolkien scholarship.

Thanks for the heads up! A very nice looking letter (condition-wise).

While awaiting Hammond's new edition of the Descriptive Bibliography, and Deagol's update of TolkienBooks.net, some may perhaps be interested in checking the Index: Writings by J.R.R. Tolkien (mostly referencing already available bibliographies) on the wiki Tolkien Gateway.

It's naturally not very reliable (I'm not intending to start a discussion on the reliability of wikis) or complete, but for what it's worth it may be useful to get an overview of especially newly published material (post-2007).
