I got an email today, that I can pre-order the latest book written by the ghost of JRR Tolkien through the mediumship of Christopher Tolkien — The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun.
It collects translations of “The Saga of the Völsungs” written while Tolkien was Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford in the 1920s and ‘30s. In other words, it’s more like an academic text than a novel.
I don’t care — I just pre-ordered. This is the kind of thing I read anyway. Right now, I’m rereading Puhvel’s Comparative Mythology.
See my previous post.
