A 'New' JRR Tolkien Book Coming This Year

The book is edited by Tolkien's son Christopher Tolkien and illustrated by Alan Lee, the same artist who illustrated The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings, died in 1973.

The Fall of Gondolin is set to arrive late this summer, manifesting as a 304-page novel, showcasing illustrations by the legendary (movie-aesthetic-inspiring) Tolkien-artist, Alan Lee, released in all physical and digital formats in numerous languages in the US by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Likely drawing inspiration from his harrowing experience, The Fall of Gondolin contains one of Tolkien's largest battles narratives outside of The Lord of the Rings. Those who have indulged in The Silmarillion may recognize the name, as it was referenced in the book. On his journey, Tuor will experience what HarperCollins describes as "one of the most arresting moments in the history of Middle-earth" when Ulmo himself emerges from the ocean during a storm. "In the latter, which Christopher Tolkien said would "(presumptively) [be] my last book in the long series of editions of my father's writings". The plot is based on the destruction of Gondolin by the evil Morgoth. In this particular story, Morgoth seeks to find and destroy the titular Elven (in this case, Noldorin Elves) city of Gondolin, but is opposed by the Valar known as Ulmo, the shaper and controller of the seas of Arda.

Health officials in Gaza said they had no information about the man shot in the video and that his identity was unknown to them. Murtaja was shot by Israeli soldiers on Friday while covering a mass demonstration near the Israeli border.


"We never dared to dream that we would see this published". The Fall of Gondolin completes a trilogy of "great tales" from the Elder Days of Middle-earth, along with Beren and Luthien and The Children of Hurin.

With Amazon planning a big Lord of the Rings TV series that is set to be the most expensive series ever produced, I guess it's only right to dig into the books once again or catch up on them if you haven't read them yet.

EW is reporting that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is set to publish a new tale in the form of The Fall of Gondolin. This handsome story captures the rise and fall of a great Elven kingdom, taking place millennia before the events of The Lord of the Rings.
