London: Author JRR Tolkien's 'The Fall of Gondolin' will be published as a stand-alone book for the first time.
The book charts the story of an elven city sacked by the Dark Lord, Morgoth, reported BBC. Tokkien started writing the book, which he termed as "the first real story" set in Middle-earth, in 1917.
The Fall of Gondolin is the second new work to be edited and released by Tolkien's son, Christopher Tolkien, in two years, said the report.
The only Middle-earth-based novels to be published by Tolkien in his lifetime were 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
