'Holy Grail' of JRR Tolkien books coming in August

The Fall of Gondolin

Just last week we told you details about Amazon's historic (and expensive) bid for the series rights to The Lord of the Rings saga, and now we have news that we'll be getting a brand new-err, brand old, I guess-Tolkien book to add to our shelves. 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. The Guardian reports that The Fall of Gondolin, the second previously-unreleased Tolkein book to be released in two years after Beren and Lúthien is set to be released.

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 United States of America by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. "Christopher Tolkien, who is now 93 himself, said last year's publication of Beren and Luthien would be "(presumptively) my last book in the long series of editions of my father's writings".

Tolkien and the Great War: The Threshold of Middle-earth author John Garth stated that, "It's a quest story with a reluctant hero who turns into a genuine hero - it's a template for everything Tolkien wrote afterwards". Tolkien never actually wrote the full story, but Christopher Tolkien has compiled a version of it from various sources. The Fall of Gondolin includes the first instances of orcs and balrogs and even has an appearance from the sea god Ulmo along with dragons and elves.

The Fall of Gondolin is set to be released in August 2018. For instance, the city of Gondolin is referenced in The Silmarillion.

Another era from the ancient history of Middle-earth (briefly chronicled in The Silmarillion,) will be greatly expanded in The Fall of Gondolin, given away by its very title. JRR Tolkien's The Fall of Gondolin will see the light of day in August, the third in a trilogy of posthumously published stories by the creator of Middle-earth. Let us know in the comments!
