Tolkien and Dickens collaborate

The Hobbit: 70th Anniversary EditionWISHFrom The Guardian:

Tolkien and Dickens collaborate, that is, their descendants are working together.
Michael GR Tolkien, the eldest grandson of JRR Tolkien has written a new book, Wish.

The audiobook of Wish is narrated by actor, Gerald Dickens, the great-great grandson of Charles Dickens. 

Sort of fun to ponder.  The cover art certainly seems familiar...

I just was perusing your archives and love what you've got here. I've got a new blog up and running with a mixture of childrens' lit, education and author info. Fee free to check it out and add it to your list of blogs out there.
