In a message dated 4/2/2005 2:35:08 P.M. Eastern Standard Time,
THE UNCHARTED REALMS OF TOLKIEN by Alex Lewis and Elizabeth Currie.
Not currently available from Amazon US, but you might try libraries, or
Malcolm Lindley of the British Tolkien Society (who sold me mine) at
It can also be obtained apparently from www.amazon.co.uk, 21 pounds plus
shipping and a "hard-to-find" charge of 1.99 pounds "excluding VAT."
Incidentally, Alex Lewis, who is a long-time member of the Tolkien Society,
will almost certainly be at Tolkien 2005 this summer in Birmingham.
Elizabeth Currie is actually his girlfriend Ruth Lacon, who has been in the Tolkien
Society almost as long. When I spoke to them about the book, Ruth gave me an
explanation which I don't remember about why she decided to use a pseudonym
on the book.
