Please, add me to the giveaway!

Even if it would have been thath kind of retelling, it will be nice. I have read Le Sphinix des glaces (The green ray?, I think that was how it was translated to Spanish) and Orlando Mad (?), illustrated by Gustave Dore. And they are good, Tolkien wrote/told (?) that if he would have read Ariosto's Orlando, he wouldn't have liked it; I never agreed with him... a bit like Inferno by Dante.

Does anyone have any idea when the first Tolkien T-shirt might have been released? Is it time for a guide to "40 years of Tolkien T-shirts"?

My beef with HC all along is that they are not a retailer, but they are playing half-assedly at being one. I don't actually think we should cut them too much slack because they have *chosen* to operate outside of their normal space, without being properly prepared to do so. It's important not to confuse whether they produce good books (as they evidently do) or whether they are good at retail. The two issues have been confused on this thread, but they are totally unrelated.

Retail operations are just completely different than wholesale, which is why the retailer gets to charge an extra 30-50% for their trouble (and still might only just manage to turn a profit).

All that said, if HC can get to the point where they consistently manage to send my parcels to the correct (and complete) delivery address, adequately packaged, then that's *all* I really care about. If they can manage to fix that, I'm cool with them.
