I hadn't read this, but when the suggestion came up on the Silmarillion Writers Guild Discord that there should be a group readthrough, it seemed like a great excuse to get around to it, so i swiftly bought a cheap second-hand copy.
So far I like it a lot, so much so that I did a brief reading of the first bit of the The New Lay of the Völsungs... oh drat. Apparently I can't upload MP3 files to LJ, only MP4? Oh well, here's a link to it on Tumblr
. Reading schedule, if anyone fancies joining in: here's the Discord Invite*.
First week (6-12 April): Introduction, "Beginning", and "Andvari's Gold" (unnumbered section and I, wth the relevant part of Commentary on the Lay of the Volsungs)
Second week (13-19 April): "Signy" to "Regin" (sections II - IV, wth the relevant part of Commentary on the Lay of the Volsungs)
Third week (20-26 April): "Brynhild" to "Strife" (sections V-IX, wth the relevant part of Commentary on the Lay of the Volsungs)
Fourth week (27 April - 3 May): Lay of Gudrun & Commentary
Fifth week (4 May - 11 May): Appendices A to C, including "Attila"
* I don't really know why this has ended up on Discord rather than anything else, but so it is.
