Thanks to Johan for the link!


Evidently in the summer of 1961, Swedish journalist Lars Gustafsson sat down with Professor Tolkien for an interview. Read more about it at lotrplaza:

That's a hilarious cover from Cambrian News.

On the BBC article, "speak and ye shall be heard". The current version of the article at that link has "thousands of visitors" so someone corrected it.

It is nice to see the standard of Journalism is so good in Wales, look at the cover of the latest issue of the "Cambrian News".

I also noted a comment on another forum from the BBC article on the festival and its viability.

"It plans to feature "internationally respected speakers", and is expected to attract dozens of visitors."

Indeed it is great that all my versions have the same page numbering, UK hardbacks, paperbacks and both sets of the three volume edition, so the current paperback index works with all these editions.

I'd assume that the pagination will be identical to the previous releases.

This will be an expensive set of books and I'd like to know before purchasing if they plan to bring out a box-set as I'd rather buy that than the individual books.

Do you think the pagination etc will be the same? i.e. this first appearance of the index in Hb, will be identical (in terms of page references) to the current Pb incarnation. (And, by implication, the pagination of all the new Hb's will the same as the original releases.) You'd guess so...

Interesting they're reprinting them all again though.
