Re: The Fall of Gondolin

damn,  this tale was believed to be a really "lost" tale, as everybody thought it was too "incomplete" and too heavily guarded to ever see the light of day !

this comes as a great surprise and may happen to reveal many things we have never seen before in the Silm or UT concerning this part of the story.

Re: The Fall of Gondolin

At the very least it will make the Tolkiens several million more pounds, though I suspect that, like the Silmarillion, I won't find it especially readable; but we shall see. Unlike his dad's work, I fundamentally find Christopher's writing style rather heavy-going.

Re: The Fall of Gondolin

I rather suspect that those books release will allow for a more solid and substancial scenario for the forthcoming Amazon pre-Lotr TV series, considering the Tolkien Estates are parterns and that Christopher Tolkien, well, did not have his say in it... I suspect he would at least prefer the prequels are based on solid litterature (silm and UT not being very "solid") than complete non canon fiction.

Re: The Fall of Gondolin

I just would like to support Master Barliman's point of view.
