I actually received an email saying something altogether more confusing!

I think Amazon just made a mess of the original estimated dispatch/delivery dates. (For the orders I placed) the deluxe dispatch states May 5th (delivery 11th-12th with Super Saver); which would be correct I guess.

The standard hardback originally stated dispatch as 29th April (delivery 6th-7th with Super Saver); which would presumably mean they would have been sending it before the official publication date (HC state the 5th of May).

However they have now corrected the standard Hb estimates to an 'arrival' date of 5th-12th! So I guess this would still involve them shipping before the 5th, if I were to receive on the 5th...

We'll just assume May some time!

I had an email from Amazon today saying that I can expect to get this book by the 1st May. Seeing as the book is not released until the 5th May, this is very unusual.

Possibly the book will come out by the 1st May.

(Cheers Trotter!) Also shows (I guess) some of the Tolkien Archive at HarperCollins HQ. Very interesting...

Interview about the new book, from TheOneRing.net

Contains information on the book, shows Brian Cox reading some of the book for the Audio Book and also explains how the cover was shown.

Harper Collins are running a quiz to win a Sony eReader & exclusive editions of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún and The Children of Húrin (Super Deluxe versions)

It is very a difficult quiz LOL, anybody on this board will get all three questions right. Sadly it is only open to UK residents

Go to http://www.tolkien-quiz.info/ to enter.
