      The History of Middle-earth is a 12-volume series of books published
      by Christopher Tolkien which explains most of the story of how The
      Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion came to be published (on a
      technical level -- that is, the books document the early, pre-
      publication sources for the books).

      Christopher provides a lot of editorial commentary, and there are
      also numerous extra materials, including previously unpublished
      stories, fragments, and reference works which JRRT composed for his
      own benefit.
