Carl F. Hostetter to Guest at Oxonmoot

We are delighted to announce that Carl will be joining us at Oxonmoot as an online guest.

It won’t have escaped your attention that the first day of Oxonmoot, 2nd September, is also the publication date of The Nature of Middle-earth, edited by Carl F. Hostetter. The book will cover some previously unpublished writings by JRR Tolkien, including a number of topics that Tolkien fans have long debated over, such as Elvish immortality, the lands of Númenor and Gondor, the nature of the Valar, and even who could grow beards. The book looks set to resolve a number of debates amongst Tolkien fans.

The Oxonmoot programme will include an interview with Carl, and an opportunity for our delegates to ask questions.

Carl is a Tolkien scholar who has been previously entrusted with Tolkien’s linguistic materials, which he has published in the journal Vinyar Tengwar. He also co-edited Tolkien’s Legendarium: Essays on The History of Middle-earth, and has contributed to Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth, Tolkien Studies and Parma Eldalamberon amongst others.

I noticed the pre order for the deluxe copy from amazon UK shipped to US just opened back up.

I’m taking my chances again with amazon, but went ahead and pay the extra few dollars for gift wrap.

Does anyone know if there is going to be a frontispiece, and what is it going to be?

If one is included, it could be a reproduction of one of Tolkien's notes or writings that are included in the book. This would be a nice bonus, however it is the contents of the book that really interests me.

The frontispiece could just be the Tree of Amalion painting.
