    I don't know how I missed this but Christopher Tolkien has released another of his father's unfinished works: The Fall of Arthur

    From the New York Times review:

    I really enjoyed The Children of Hurin and especially The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun and I am looking forward to this new one.

    Althought I have read some of the additional books I found them to be too dry, less story and more like history notes, which, quite frankly, I found to be somewhat unreadable. LOTR - fantastic book. The others ... not so much.

    Thanks for the info Spark. I'll definitely give it a chance. Hope not to be disappointed (usually if an author chooses not to publish their work, there's good reason...

    I think I have it somewhere around here. I'll start on it as soon as I finish my current read.
