Michael Martinez reports on the Xenite.org message ring, "I have it on good authority that THE ANNOTATED HOBBIT is being updated and should be published sometime next summer. If you have never seen this book (which is currently out-of-print), it is one of the most widely respected Tolkien commentaries ever published. Douglas Anderson's research is superb. He brings a lot of insight to Tolkien."
The following message came in our morning mail: "For those of you who didn’t already know, last month saw the highly successful launch of www.tolkien.co.uk. So by way of celebration we thought we’d give all of you Tolkien fans out there the chance to watch rare archive footage of JRR Tolkien explaining how he came to write The Hobbit."

Krosshair sent us this scan from an InformationWeek contest which any Tolkien fan could have no problems winning -- too bad it's over. But if you want to submit your guesses here (and win something more valuable than a T-Shirt -- our gratitude), CLICK HERE.
Michael let us know that he has posted three scans from Eclipse Comics graphic novel adaptation of The Hobbit on Miqque on the Web.
Ringzone called our attention to these scans of Eclipse Comics' The Hobbit graphic novels appear on Miqque on the Web.
