In the slow slog for getting Facebook integrated with TCG, I have added a "like" button on the homepage in the upper right corner (just below the twitter button).

Clicking on this button will post to your facebook profile that you 'like' TCG. TCG will not see your Facebook credentials, your profile information, or any other personal information - that is all handled by Facebook themselves.

Please 'like' TCG. (If you like this site, of course!) Please let me know if the button doesn't show up for you (it took more than a day to get it to show up in IE, other browsers had no problems with it). Please leave feedback of any kind on Facebook and TCG!

Why? Because 500 million people use Facebook, and some of them are Tolkien fans who don't know about TCG yet. Every person who 'likes' TCG means that they share this interest with their Facebook friends who may drop by.

If you go to the author, Kristy Lynn Higgins', Amazon page and look at the reviews, you may possibly find another deceptive little practice going on: Some of the positive reviews are duplicates from the same small number of accounts (on different days, albeit often with the same text), and if you then examine those users (e.g. BookWarrior "Zaine"), you see that all they have ever reviewed are Ms. Higgins' books (and they seem to have reviewed *all* of them).

Most of the genuine reviews correctly seem to describe the writing as excrement (although the story gets a couple of ticks). However, the sample chapters adequately demonstrate the nastiness of the writing. Realistically, If I want to enjoy writing of that quality, then I will write a novel myself.

Thanks Jeremy,

Here are the bottom corners:

As you can see, what I assume to be the price (from other photos I've found online) has been blacked out with a marker, but you can just make out the "49" at the end of it.

There is a piece missing on the left side, as well as a few tears. The largest of which is on the left side about 1/4 of the way up. It's about 1.5". The couple others are less than half an inch. I'll get more detailed photos before I make this available.

I could have come rolled originally, but I remember it being folded when I got it as a kid. The folding doesn't seem to be very exact -- i.e. it doesn't fold exactly square. It seems like if it was being folded "professionally" it would have been done better, but perhaps the original folding was better and it has just been badly refolded since then? The blacked out price might also be indicative of a fan club mailing though -- hiding the price for people who received it as part of their membership?
