Turgon writes: I’ve just been notified that there is a new review by Tom Shippey of THE SCIENCE OF MIDDLE-EARTH by Henry Gee, aka Olog-Hai, some of whose columns appear regularly in Green Books. Shippey’s review appears in the March 2005 issue of THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF SCIENCE FICTION. It’s a long review, covering Henry Gee’s book favorably and another book, THE REAL MIDDLE-EARTH by Brian Bates, less favorably, and unfortunately it isn’t online, but one small quote shows the tenor of the review: “THE SCIENCE OF MIDDLE-EARTH is the most unexpectedly Tolkienian book about Tolkien that I have ever come across.”
