New Tolkien book due soon

Tolkien Jr completes Lord of Rings - Independent Online Edition > News

This could be interesting assuming it's closer to LotR and the Hobbit rather than the histories or the Silmarillion.
Also hopefully the quality of the work is up there with whats expected from modern fantasy authors.
