The Unfinished Tales is a collection of stories about the characters found in the mythos of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth series. Summary of the Book Published posthumously by Tolkien's youngest son, The Unfinished Tales of Numenor and Middle Earth tells the stories of how Gandalf found Bilbo and how he decided to send the Dwarves of Erebor to him. It also tells the story of Aldarion and Erendis, one of the most moving love stories to be found in Tolkien's fantasy setting. Illuminating on subjects hitherto untouched such as the identities of the five Istari who would later be known as Wizards, the Palantiri and their making, the legend of Amroth and the coming of the sea god Ulmo before Tuor on the coast of Beleriand, this is a collection any Tolkien fan would not want to miss. About J.R.R. Tolkien John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was a best-selling English author. He is considered the father of the fantasy genre and is best known for The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. Professor Tolkien studied English Language and Literature at Exeter College, Oxford. He loved creating languages, and his work on Middle-Earth has since elevated to cult-status after the release of the Oscar Winning movie trilogy directed by Peter Jackson.
