Please vote to return to collections (Voting Results will appear on Right Sidebar).
    (November 21, 1924-January 15, 2020)
    Born in Leeds, England, United Kingdom
    Son of J. R. R. Tolkien
    Edited his father's posthumously published works 'The Silmarillion' (1977), 'Unfinished Tales' (1980), 'History of Middle Earth' (1983-96) and 'The Children of Hurin' (2007)
    He and his son Simon reportedly stopped speaking after Simon endorsed Peter Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
    Simon noted, 'The essential thing was I crossed my father on a Tolkien issue and he never looked back.'
    He has threatened to sue websites reporting on his feud with Simon.
    He said popular entertainment is 'unutterably low.'
    He served with the Royal Air Force in World War II.
    He drew the maps of Middle Earth for 'The Lord of the Rings.'
    Although he felt 'The Lord of the Rings' was 'unsuitable' for adaptation as a film, he denied discouraging people from seeing the movies.
    Given what Ralph Bakshi did to 'The Lord of the Rings,' can you blame Christopher for being gun-shy about the Jackson films?
