Tolkien fans, it is time to get excited.

a long loved Middle Earth love story between a man and elf is set to be rereleased next year.

The story titled, The Tale of Beren and Lúthien was written after Tolkien's returned from the Somme after WWI and clearly the story and characters therein meant something significant to Tolkien and his wife who have the names of the characters etched on their resting places.

The story has appeared in several form over the year but the new release is set to include never before notes and legends.

The new volume has been edited by Tolkien's son and illustrated by longtime Tolkien illustrator, Alan Lee.

Definitely interested to learn more about this book as the release date quickens.
