Whatever woes Houghton Mifflin Harcourt may have, there's still J.R.R. Tolkien to bring in the readers and book-buyers. HMH announced publication of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, an English verse retelling of Norse tales, written by Tolkien in the 1920s and 30s. The book, due out in May, is edited with notes and commentary by Christopher Tolkien, son of J.R.R. It will also have an introduction taken from one of J.R.R.'s academic lectures on Norse mythology. Learn more about the book from the Tolkien Library.
