Anyone else here notice J. R. R. Tolkien's The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, due to be released in a few days? Anyone else planning to read and/or buy?

I saw an ad for it. I don't know if I'll buy it, but I'll probably read it within the next year or so. I wonder, 36 years after JRR's death, how much of the book is his work, and how much Christopher's.

I'm planning on buying it in a few months when the prices go down. I've recently read Padriac Colum's "Children of Odin," and am curious to read Tolkien's poetic version of the stories.
