It is very interesting to go back and reread William Cater's interview/ article "The Filial Duty of Christopher Tolkien", published in the Sunday Times Magazine shortly before the Silmarillion was released, and later reprinted in Ballantine's Tolkien Scrapbook
Filial duty, indeed!
Christopher began 'editing' his father's work at the age of five, correcting his continuity errors as he told The Hobbit, and spent the next 45 years assisting his father, and 45 years perpetuating his legacy.
