About The Silmarillion
The Silmarillion is a published collection of J.R.R. Tolkien's works, edited and released posthumously by his son and literary executor, Christopher Tolkien, with the assistance of fantasy fiction writer Guy Gavriel Kay.

It is the primary source for Middle-earth's history of the world of Arda from the birth of Eä to the end of the Third Age.

J.R.R. Tolkien in Letter 131 to Milton Waldman: "The Silmarillion is the history of the War of the Exiled Elves against the Enemy, which all takes place in the North-west of the world (Middle-earth). Several tales of victory and tragedy are caught up in it; but it ends with catastrophe, and the passing of the Ancient World."
