New(ish) Tolkien Book Coming in 2017


Beren and Lúthien, a Middle-earth story about forbidden love between an Elven woman and human man, based famously on Tolkien’s own love for his wife, is set to be published as its own title in 2017, on the 100-year anniversary since the two characters first appeared in a Tolkien story. The story is to be retold by Tolkien’s son Christopher, Carli Velocci reports at Geek, and will be supplemented with already-published text cut from other works in the History of Middle-earth series.
