New Tolkien Book Coming in 2013
“The Fall of Arthur,” which will be published by HarperCollins UK, is a poem over two-hundred pages in length which depicts the last days of the legendary king.
“We were both delighted and surprised when we received word that Christopher Tolkien had completed work on editing “The Fall of Arthur” for publication,” said HarperCollins editor Chris Smith. “Though its title had been known from Humphrey Carpenter’s biography and J.R.R. Tolkien’s own letters, we never supposed that it would see the light of day.”
