Anyone spotted that there seems to be a new paperback Silmarillion due out in August?

Thanks Morgan and Turambar for the heads' up.

As far as I can tell that Silmarillion is just new cover art. Yes?

The Bodleian book sounds nice - won't know until is comes out if it has anything we haven't seen elsewhere. Is someone planning to get it and can give a review?

I have ordered a copied and should get it on release, I will let people know what is in it, from a Tolkien point of view, but I am also interested in the other material

I'll also get the Silmarillion but I think you are right that it is just a new cover.

A faun carrying an umbrella. A hobbit who makes his home in a hole in the ground. An ill-treated schoolboy with a secret and a scar. Fantasy is among the most beloved genres in children’s literature— and its offerings are often just as eagerly anticipated by adults. But how is it that writers like J. K. Rowling and Philip Pullman are able to create such remarkable images?

Magical Tales traces the origin of the genre back through Norse mythology, Arthurian legend, and medieval literature. Drawing on manuscripts and rare books in the renowned collection of the Bodleian Library, the essays turn the spotlight on spell books; grimoires, or magical textbooks; and books of legend and myth whose themes writers like J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis incorporated into their work, inspiring generations of writers that extend to the present day. In serving as a source of inspiration for later literary works, the contributors show, myths and legends have themselves been altered in interesting ways.

Richly illustrated, Magical Tales offers an enchanting take on the development of this wildly popular genre.

Thanks Urulókë for that one--I wasn't aware of that book.

As most of you already know, the reprint of _J. R. R. Tolkien, Scholar and Storyteller: Essays in Memorium_ is now available: http://www.amazon.com/J-R-Tolkien-Sch ... +Scholar+and+Storyteller.

I'd highly recommend it if you don't already own it.

"It includes his obituary notices from The Times of London [frequently and erroneously attributed to C.S. Lewis] and his valedictory address at Oxford in which he points out, eloquently and purposefully, the artificiality of the split between language and literary study." I think the version printed here is slightly different than the one that appears in _Monsters and the the Critics_. The collection also contains an early piece by Shippey.

Presumably, yes. It looks like it's intended to match this existing Hobbit/LR set:

This is blatant self-promotion, but even so, the new issue of Mythlore will be coming out soon: http://www.mythsoc.org/mythlore/mythlore-121-122/.

The Tolkien Estate has been extremely kind in allowing me to quote from a previously unpublished Tolkien letter in my article, in which Tolkien briefly discusses Narnia.

For those interested in previously unpublished material from Tolkien, you might want to pick up a copy.
