Oscars. I guess I should say that "The History of Middle-earth" is a
series of not one, not two, not three, but twelve volumes, published
between 1983 and 1996, containing Tolkien's drafts and various versions of
"The Silmarillion" and "The Lord of the Rings", plus much supplementary and
additional material, dating all the way from the early 1910s to the end of
his life. With extensive commentary by Christopher Tolkien.
A simple guide to all of Tolkien's non-technical work is on my web page at
