Christopher Tolkien finished up many of his father's, J.R.R. Tolkien's, works-in-progress; lost versions, variant forms, background material to existing stories, and excerpts that were cut from some stories before publication. These are 'unfinished tales,' fifty years of Tolkien.

There are some chapters that have a story in addition to the notes, but it is mostly written from Tolkien's notes on vaious historical background subjects. For example, the history of Galadriel and Celeborn.

Excellent reading for any Tolkien fans who wish to understand the history a little better. Explains a lot. I believe he started this book long before any of his more well known works, and it has a lot of the roots in it. Enjoy

As the title says... this is a book of unfinished tales written by J.R.R. Tolkien. It was compiled by his son, Christopher Tolkien. It is a more technical read than J.R.R.'s stories are but a must for the avid Tolkien enthusiast. I have had it for many years and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

If you are a fan of Tolkien you will really love this book. Gives many side stories and data for his trilogy.

The tales are somewhat esoteric, and a little dry if you're looking for amusement. However, the Tolkein devotee will enjoy the background and history. The tales flesh out a lot of historical references from the Lord of the Rings.
