No, I haven't read it all already, but I've browsed a lot. It's terrific, as you'd expect, and I already have two other enormous books in my queue that I've been working on in desultory fashion for years. It's an essential reference book for the extremely serious, and I'll never be done with it. Perhaps I should check the 'hide entire review because of spoilers' box? Andrew Higgins can call me a cheater if he wants to.

An impressive work. If something related to Tolkien does not appear here, it does not exist.
