New Tolkien Book, "Beren and Lúthien" coming May 2017!

So, from my Facebook feed I received glad tidings of a new Tolkien, stand alone book coming out due in May 2017:  "Beren and Lúthien"!

Seems it will do much like "The Children of Hurin" did, expanding the story of Beren & Luthien, plus have alternate tellings of the story as he reworked the tale through the years, in the back of the book.  They said that this book is being released 100 years after Tolkiens wife Edith danced for him in a woodland glade in east Yorkshire.

 

I cant wait to add this to my collection!

New Tolkien Book,

I'm very excited too! Even if Bergen and Luthien are not my favorite characters, they may be my favorite story.
