hmmm... have the fans gotten anything together, or demanded a write up of the author's notes or anything? I mean, If tolkein had died halfway through the ROTK and, miraculously the first two books had already been published [though I know that the three-book division was artificial - Tolkein wrote LOTR as one book], there would have been riots. Christopher Tolkein would have had to get on the job quick and at least provide a filled in outline for ROTK.
