    I bought a new book today. I had never seen it before.


    here is what the back of the books says...

    As friends and fellow members of the literary circle known as The Inklings, JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis embarked on a challenge. Lewis was to write on "space-travel" ans Tolkien on "time-travel". Lewis's novel Out of the Silent Planet became the first book of a science fiction trilogy. Tolkien's unfinished story "The Lost Road" chronicles the original destruction of Numenor, a pivotal event of the Second Age of Middle-Earth.

    In the intriguing volume, Christopher Tolkien traces the vivid history of Middle-Earth, bringing the land--its topography and ever-clashingforces--to the state readers recognise from the Lord of the Rings. Entertaining and informative, The Lost Road and Other Writings shares fresh insights into the evolution of one of the world's most enduring fantasies.

    I believe that is considered vol. 12 in the middle earth series. I haven't read it yet, I hoping to get the rest of the series for xmas. :D

    If you're a great Tolkien-fan you can't have 'em missing in your collection.
