The Lord fo the Rings: A Reader's Companion by Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull is considered one of the greatest recent secondary works about Tolkien's world. The book contains rare Tolkien-related extracts, poems, letters, manuscripts, interviews, as well as brand new material.


  • Notes on significant changes made by the author and by Christopher Tolkien after his father's death

  • Part of Tolkien’s 1951 letter to Milton Waldman, previously unpublished in the UK.
  • A reproduction of a manuscript page showing a a synoptic time scheme used while writing The Lord of the Rings. It summarizes the movements of characters between the 8th and the 12th of March.
  • Brief references to illustrations, maps, and earlier versions of the text
  • References to people, places, and events that appear in other books by Tolkien
  • Explanations of archaic and unusual words
  • Translations and primers on how to use Tolkien's invented languages
