I saw the new paintings from Ted Nasmith and loved them... all new ones were from UT and so I thought he was preparing an illustrated edition. It seems Brawn did not plan such an edition. Very sad, because I know Ted would love to see such edition realized.

thats a pity about no illustrated version of Unfinished Tales mentioned in the David Brawn interview.,
maybe you could suggest to him an un-illustrated Deluxe version of Unfinished Tales, similar to the black Deluxe Silmarillion, HoME and LotR series.
also it would be interesting to know if they will ever publish Tolkien's translation of Beowulf.
and can we expect any other previously unpublished Tolkien works in the near future?

HiBeren,

Apart from the usual questions regarding the super delue edition (when, how many and what format) I have a few other questions regarding the anniversary of both The Hobbit and The Silmarillion.

Will Christopher Tolkien be attending any events throughout the year??
Your article mentions that he is unable to attend the UK, but will he appear in person elsewhere or via the media?

Will there be any previously unpublished material in the new editions?

One rumour that has been floating around for a long time is follow volumes of Letters by Tolkien and another Artist & Illustrator with new illustrations and letters. Are these being considered?

I'm not sure if these are the sort of questions you would like to pass on, but I'd be interested in the answers.

I saw some info on the backhand of harpercollins about a new 70 ann. edition that will be published. Sad but i'm unable to log in for two weeks now. They seem to have switched servers and have big problems on website and email.

Once i manage to get inside the backhand i will post the info here. The previous (so called) 70th ann. edition was indeed just a re-print. The fascimile edition is sheduled for this year but they already let some info slip and made some mistakes... very terrible. Now you can see an image of a new book and order it, but you will receive a different (old) book.

It is for sure they were planning a super deluxe edition. First I did receive info on this and even received info on ISBN and how it will look like. Then suddenly the project was been rediscussed and put on hold. Reason was new discussion with the Tolkien Estate. Of course this made me think they would proceed from a signed edition by Alan Lee, towards a signed edition with both Alan Lee and Christopher Tolkien.

If they have the project ready and start discussing with the family I thought it would be about time and place to get the signatures of CT. Then one month later they told me to contact them again in January 2007, and said things had changed and that it was unsure there would come a signed edition in April 2007. So there for I contacted David Brawn in January and you saw about 60% of my answers and questions.

Something went wrong, or pre-orders of the normal deluxe edition are not as high as they expect, or something completely different.... I can contact David Brawn again for more answers if you wish. But if i do so i will need a full list of new questions. So people, if you need to ask anything to the Tolkien publishers just say what you need to know!
