I went to look at it, and I can't tell...did Christopher finish it or is it being published as is?

Looks to me like it is being published as is. I am not sure if I will spring for it. Probably will, though. :D

Here is something on the Tolkien Library site about the book:

lady ruthless
fair as fay-woman and fell-minded
in the world walking for the woe of men.
