Fascinating article on how we may so easily have been left with no Unfinished Tales etc from Tolkien.

Go check it out at:

Lingwë – Musings of a Fish: Christopher Tolkien, Warren Hamilton Lewis, and Laurence Housman – The blog of Tolkien scholar and philologist Jason Fisher.

If you know an author, think twice before throwing out their junk when they die!
