Exploring The Hobbit with Dr. Olsen

We rang in the new year in a big way here at the Mythgard hobbit hole.  And we had plenty of reason to celebrate, for we received word that Professor Corey Olsen’s text for Exploring The Hobbit has officially gone on to Houghton-Mifflin!  And thanks to eagle-eyed auditor Andrew Higgins, we also know that Professor Olsen’s book, which comes out in September, is now available for pre-order at

We’ve created a new section of our Mythgard website where Professor Olsen will be sharing his thoughts and giving visitors a behind-the-scenes look at what exactly goes into the creation of his companion piece to The Hobbit.  We’ve also posted links to buy the hardcover and Kindle editions.  Please consider showing your support for The Tolkien Professor himself by pre-ordering your copy!   Check back as the year progresses and we post news about Professor Olsen’s Exploring The Hobbit events and get his reaction to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey movie news.

It’s going to be a great year!
