And now for some important news

Christopher Tolkien has completed an unfinished story of his father's, left in several drafts, due for publication in the coming year.
Christopher Tolkien has spent 30 years working on The Children of Hurin, which The Lord of the Rings author started in 1918 and later abandoned....

"It has seemed to me for a long time that there was a good case for presenting my father's long version of the legend of The Children of Hurin as an independent work, between its own covers," Christopher Tolkien said in a statement.

The story involves the elves and dwarves that feature in much of Tolkien's work.

In other important news, according to J K Rowling herself, apparently the fact that James Potter's invisibility cloak ended up with Dumbledore, after James' death will become a fact of significance in the final tome of the Harry Potter series.

Any theories on why?
