About Tales from the Perilous Realm

Never before published in a single volume, Tolkiens four novellas (Farmer Giles of Ham, Leaf by Niggle, Smith of Wootton Major, and Roverandom) and one book of poems (The Adventures of Tom Bombadil) are gathered together for the first time. This new, definitive collection of works which had appeared separately, in various formats, between 1949 and 1998 comes with an illuminating introduction from esteemed author and Tolkien expert Tom Shippey as well as Tolkeins most celebrated essay, On Fairy-stories, which astutely addresses the relationship between fairy tales and fantasy. The book is the perfect opportunity for fans of Middle-earth to enjoy some of Tolkiens often overlooked yet most creative storytelling. With dragons and sand sorcerers, sea monsters and hobbits, knights and dwarves, this collection contains all the classic elements for Tolkien buffs of all ages.
