The ever successful Lord of the Rings epic adventure is coming out with final spin – off. Christopher Tolkien has previously edited his father’s works such as The Children of Húrin and The Silmarillion.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the writer stated that thought the window remains open in the future “The Fall of Gondolin is indubitably the last” of Tolkien senior’s writings that he will publish in this form.
However, in view of the known writers twist, it was the first story that the famed author committed to paper of his fantasy world, so it seems fitting that it is the last published.
Alan Lee, an author who worked on the book stated that, “We didn’t actually know about it until this time last year there was a potential other one. I’m sure he’ll be happy to have those books in his hand. This particular journey is completed.”
He added: “What makes The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings work as well as they do is that they are set into this cultural background with its own history and languages. You get so much more from those particular stories if you actually delve back and enjoy the mythology of Middle-earth.
