Ahh, you do yourself a disservice - Even I know who you are (sort of), and I'm all the way out here in the colonies !!

My copy arrived today from the Book Depository (£14.96 with free UK delivery), looking forward to reading it

Still trying to work out who the famous reviewer, Brian Henderson, is on the back of the book

>Does it beat Amazon's £14.96 at any point though?

Nah, that's the thing with the online book stores - you really have to shop around as they change their prices every 5 minutes and are inconsistent in their pricing relative to each other.

A good Tolkien example that I noticed the other day was with the rather overpriced Oliphaunt Poster. Amazon - GBP 99, BD (".com" with UK IP and usual 10% discount code) - GBP 57.60. Yet you look at the 3 volume HoME books and they are *much* more expensive on BD than Amazon. Go figure...
