-- In December, New Line Cinema, a division of Time Warner, will release the first of three motion pictures based on The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The subsequent two movies will be released in December of 2002 and December 2003.
-- There is currently only one Tolkien biography in print. It is a reprint of a British edition and as such is somewhat dry and scholarly and not an entertaining read.
-- The book's release coincides with the release of the first movie in the trilogy. Our edition can be easily updated on a yearly basis if necessary.
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973) was 62 years old when he wrote a trilogy of books entitled The Lord of the Rings. The three books were set in a pre-historical era in an invented version of the world. Since then, The Lord of the Rings has sold millions of copies and has been translated into virtually ever language on the planet. Its influence is clearly evident in many areas of today's popular culture, most notably the hugely successful Star Wars movies. This book will be a comprehensive overview of Tolkien's life and work, from his poverty-stricken childhood to his astonishing success as a novelist.
