From the original version of the Hobbit to its latter revised edition, the publishing of the Lord of the Rings on to The Silmarilion, published by his son Christopher soon after his death. 

 

Along with Unfinished Tales, Lost Tails, the Letters of Tolkien and the 12 volume set of The History of Middle Earth.

 

What books fit in where, when were they published and when did Tolkien write them? His works cover a life time but were refined down to several rather small works.

 

And a sneak peak at our up coming episode on Magic in Middle Earth.
