Tolkien’s Secret Vice: An Interview with Dr Dimitra Fimi and Dr Andrew Higgins

Alan and Shawn welcome Dr. Dimitra Fimi and Dr. Andrew Higgins as the first guests to The Prancing Pony Podcast! They are the editors of the new critical edition of Tolkien’s A Secret Vice. We turn the word-nerdery up to 11 to talk about Tolkien’s approach to language invention and the lasting impact his work had on the Middle-earth legendarium and the fantasy genre itself. Our inner geeks get the vicarious thrill of handling manuscripts written in the Professor’s own hand.

Thanks, I would like to see your copy, as it appears to be different from any copy that I have seen before.

Personally I think that is a really bad idea, given that in the modern world everybody thinks they are entitled to a payday.

People will be buying an item in the hope it is fake and this could drive prices higher. Fakes will not be driven out of the market rather just the profit reduced for the forgers. Given that many large operations will have no legal money to be returned to the buyer it will be almost impossible to recoup losses.

A lengthy prison sentence is much more befitting in my eyes.

I understand that the State of California is looking at a law that would allow people who have been sold fake autographed items, to claim punitive damages from the seller, up to ten times what the item sold for.

I think this is a great idea to stop forgers from faking autographs, hope the rest of the US and other countries look at this as well.

You can see in the link Mark Hamill stating that 50-90% of his 'autographs' on eBay are fake, and he is not happy about it.
