HOME = History Of Middle Earth. It comes in 12 seperate volumes or 3 larger ones.

It is basically Chrisopher Tolkien scraping together all the notes and letters and work of his father that was not published and putting it all together in sperate books. Like expansion packs I suppose to the existing works.

Because you haven't been looking thoroughly enough?

Probably because it hasn't been translated to Finish and there aren't enough Tolkien fans that visit your local bookshops for the owners to stock them. If you really want a copy of one or more of the twelve volumes in the series, you could ask a local book shop to order one for you. Many of them are better for reference than for straight reading, others are for good reading. I only have a few of them.

Please look through the threads under The History of for more info.

Even in Canada I can't find a bookstore that has all twelve volumes of HoME. You really have to look in many bookstores if you want the whole pack. But the price of these books are really expensive, so I wouldn't recommend buying all of them.

Tell you what Arath if you give me your email address I can send all the HOME volume to you in the 'electronic book' format.

To be honest, I prefer to read it from a book than stare at a computer screen.......... especially if it's a complete series, one mustn't stare at a computer screen too much, as the saying goes, "it'll screw up your eyes" :teacher: :elfbiggrin:

You could print them off.

However they are really just to find quotes.
