The Fall of Arthur, a recently unearthed work by J.R.R. Tolkien, is set to be published in the US by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in May of 2013. The book will be edited by Tolkien’s son, Christopher, who will provide commentary and notes. The Fall of Arthur chronicles the last days of King Arthur, and is the first new work by Tolkien to be discovered since The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun was published in 2009.
