      LORD OF THE RINGS TIE IN BOOK HITS 350,000

      Houghton Mifflin has gone back to press for an additional 100,000 copies
      of
      the single-volume The Lord of the Rings Movie Tie-in Edition less than
      three
      weeks after the book's official publication date. The company said in a
      press release that the in-print total for the book has reached 350,000
      even
      though the movie version of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the
      Ring is not due out for another six months, on Dec. 19.

      The Lord of the Rings Movie Tie-in Edition contains all three Rings
      books
      written by J.R.R. Tolkien, including The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two
      Towers and The Return of the King. In 1954 Houghton Mifflin first
      published
      The Fellowship of the Ring in the United States, followed by the second
      book
      in 1955 and the third in 1956.

      QUEEN NAMES LEE A CBE

      Veteran character actor Christopher Lee, who will appear as the
      villainous
      Saruman in the upcoming Lord of the Rings film trilogy, was named a
      Commader
      of the British Empire in the queen's Birthday Honors List on June 16,
      the
      Reuters news service reported. The award is one of Great Britain's
      highest
      civilian honors and recognizes valuable services to the state.

      Lee is best known for playing Dracula in a series of Hammer horror films
      and
      will appear in Peter Jackson's upcoming film trilogy based on J.R.R.
      Tolkien's Rings books.
