I read the Book of Lost Tales. It's a little strange, very different. Very different even from the Silmarillion, which I've read I think twice. I also read Tales from the Perilous Realm (which is only peripherally related), and something called 'something something' Numenor, sorry my memory's failing this late.
There is, of course, a reason why none of these publications is particularly popular, especially in comparison to The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings.

It's been a while since I read the book and don't remember much in the way of plot details, but is that sword supposed to be a companion blade to Bilbo's Sting? It certainly looks like it.

It is. Sting, Glamdring (Gandalf's Sword), and Orcrist (Thorin's) were found in the same cache, and were all three from Gondolin in the first age.

With the release of Thorin's costume, TheOneRing.Net has published a full-body compilation of all 13 Dwarves. Check it out!

Hm...Thorin looks...young. Badass and young.
And why does he remind me of Gowron?

I read some of the first Lost Tales book, glanced at the third. I only own the second one because it has more detail on the Fall of Gondolin.

I thought the dwarves were meant to have brightly coloured beards?
I thought it was brightly colored hoods and cloaks. Either way ...

... I actually like the look of the film versions thus far. In PJ I trust.

The biggest and only relevant reason being that The Book of Lost Tales, Unfinised Tales, The History of Middle-earth, etc., are all more like reference books, full of old scraps and notes by Tolkien, edited together to flesh out Tolkien's ongoing development of Middle-earth. They're not novels like The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

I'm OK with a younger Thorin (not what I expected, but, then again, for a guy who leads them into battle at the end, something that makes a lot of sense). I didn't picture Frodo to be as young as he was portrayed either.

Although the shortness of some of their beards bothers me a bit.

Who decides what's relevant? My reason is that they're boring.

I decide, dagnabbit! ...Okay, maybe not.

Sorry for getting snippy, my point was just that those books weren't published for their entertainment value.

Thanks, mswood! Another fantastic video, with a great moment that I shan't spoil. You'll all know what I'm talking about.

Here's a YouTube link for those who don't want to deal with Facebook.

These production diaries are just amazing. I wish they'd done this for LOTR, back in the day.
