The Wayward Herald: Tolkien, King Arthur and More!

One of the most interesting bits of news this week concerned a heretofore unpublished poem by J.R.R. Tolkien titled The Fall of Arthur. Middle-Earth News announced this week that the poem will be published in its entirety by Harper Collins on May 23, 2013. For anyone who has read Tolkien’s translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, this is great news!

In other tidings, Splash of Our Worlds posted a review of the movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I’ve not seen the film, but I reviewed the book here. Splash of Our Worlds liked the movie, so I’ll have to see it.

Also, as of this weekend, George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire , Books 1-4, moved into the #1 spot for fantasy fiction on, while The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern retained the #1 rank in historical fantasy.

Until next week, good tidings and good day!
