That sucks. Loved the "new" stuff coming out furthering Tolkien's world.

Nice headline. Very fitting.

The Silmarillion was one difficult read when I was a kid. I should go read some of the more recent tales for fun and see how he developed. I loved his father's novels as a youth - I read them at least 3 times.

I never thought of him as being old - especially that old. I should have known better.

RIP
