John Garth’s new book The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien: The Places That Inspired Middle-earth (or UK edition) is shaping up to be another must-own for Tolkien fans and scholars.
It is already rated the #1 New Release on Amazon in the Science Fiction History and Criticism genre, and it doesn’t release until June 2.
Garth gave a little bit of information about his book when he was on one of the live episodes of the Prancing Pony Podcast from Tolkien 2019 earlier this year.
Just this week, Tolkiendil (the French equivalent of the Tolkien Society) revealed a sneak peek inside the new book on Twitter:

In all, Garth is playing the publicity game very well right now, revealing enough detail to keep us very interested without giving the whole book away!
Given the success and acclaim of his first book, Tolkien and the Great War (the audiobook of which Garth recorded himself, and it is available to purchase and on Audible), expectations are high and I am confident that he will deliver!
Additionally, Garth published a shorter volume, Tolkien at Exeter College, in 2015 and you can purchase it on his website.
