Great news to all Tolkien fans!
As I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, the second of the Tolkien’s “Great Tales” will find itself on shelves as a standalone publication in May 2017, HarperCollins announced.
The book, which will compile together all known versions of the story, will be edited by Christopher Tolkien and illustrated by Alan Lee. Its publication will coincide with the 10th anniversary since the publication of The Children of Húrin.
The words “new” might be somewhat deceiving though as, somewhat similar to The Children of Húrin, this publication will feature existent material that is spread across the entire The History of Middle-earth series, and it is unclear whether any new text will be included.
