    Tolkien and Dickens grandsons collaborate on new book

    The descendants of JRR and Charles Dickens are to collaborate on stories written by Michael Tolkien (based on stories told to him as a child by JRR) and narrated on e-books by Gerald Dickens: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-17752990
