"A new book by Lord of the Rings author JRR Tolkien is going on sale - 100 years after it was first conceived."

BBC: Beren and LĂșthien has been described as a "very personal story" that the Oxford professor thought up after returning from the Battle of the Somme.

'It was edited by his son Christopher Tolkien and contains versions of a tale that became part of The Silmarillion.

'The book features illustrations by Alan Lee, who won an Academy Award for his work on Peter Jackson's film trilogy.'
