Ah, but something that was never where? Appleyard's quote, and his
description of it, seem to reveal that _The Children of Hurin_ uses
one possible source over another for a particular passage. It's
pretty eenie-weenie to you and me, but the _History of Middle-earth_
devotees in the discussion to which I linked, commenting on, say, the
possible appearance of "valiant Fingon" versus "prevaricate
Fingolfin" (to quote one of the discussants) might find more meaning
in Appleyard's citation than we do. The spoiler advisory was
directed at anyone here who might have a similar interest.
Given that most of the material in CoH has probably been published
before, there may not be much to spoil except the nature of the
selection. Well, only five more days of idle speculation.
