By the way I got pretty much the same answers from David, but notably he did not answer whether the pagination will be the same (so the paperback index will work for the new hardcovers, and vice versa) - this could easily be just an oversight but I am a tad concerned. Just have to get a copy and see! There are editorial changes to all volumes in the new HoME editions to correct various errors that have been found since the last editions were set.


We have already established that the UK paperback and UK hardback's have exactly the same pagination, so a hardback index will work with the UK hardbacks. HC need to be careful when editing the books to make sure that the pagination remains the same, which is my main worry about this.

If anyone has the HC and HM hardbacks, are the page numbers the same, so does this index work for HM hardbacks?

It's not easy to read the letters. I'm in two minds about them, myself. On the one hand, it would seem fantastic to suppose that someone could fake letterheads of A&U, and Help the Aged. On the other hand, I can't imagine anyone English spelling 'cheque' as 'check'!

In the eBay auction above, the seller is offering photocopies of various letters between the original owner and GA&U negotiating to get a US book signed by Tolkien. Some of the letters are signed by Joy Hill, I noticed.

A lot just seems weird about this whole thing, but it could well be legitimate. Anyone else with more intimate knowledge have any input?

On the "unpublished material" question, what David says in Beren's interview is


We are working on a couple of projects for the autumn, but nothing at the moment of the 'previously unpublished' variety. For once it is the calendar this year that really fulfils the brief of unpublished archive material.


This is in response to Beren's question if there is anything new coming out this year (emphasis added).

So don't give up hope on other unpublished material being released! I am sure they will find something in a stack of papers somewhere one of these days...

Brian Cox' agent is available on IMDbPro (which I don't have a subscription to - anyone else? Anyone? ... Bueller? Bueller?) You can sign up for a 14 day free trial if someone wants to go that route and make the phone call (probably someone in the UK).
