> Too bad I will not get a nice low number, but I guess that is not terribly important.

I wouldn't be too sure - It really depends on how popular it has been. I'm not certain that they even sent out the emails to those who pre-registered interest stating the book was actually available (I know I didn't get one). If they didn't, there may not have been that many purchases so far, anyway.

Of course, they may have started taking phone orders the day before when they definitely did send out an email stating it was just a day away (and provided a phone number), in which case a few might have been sold before the official release and that would push the numbers up a bit.

I'd actually quite like to be wrong, but I can't imagine there has been a great stampede of buyers. Even CoH took a couple of days to get into triple figures and I would have thought that this would be less popular (although it is a more sensible price, and content-wise is IMHO a (surprisingly) more interesting book, so who knows..?).

Thanks for the info, Jeremy. The website was still rejecting me about an hour ago, but I just gave it one last shot before bedtime, and it worked! Too bad I will not get a nice low number, but I guess that is not terribly important.

Thanks to the German Tolkien Society, I found a German review in the top German newspaper: "Even to the great cry of vengeance". This is a serious and positive review, even though it starts out by stating that Tolkien's retelling of the Edda came from the same impulse as fanfic by readers of J.K. Rowling and Stephenie Meyer and as Jules Verne's continuation of Edgar Alan Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket as Le Sphinx des glaces, Goethe's continuation of Alois Schikaneder's Magic Flute and Ariosto's continuation of Matteo Maria Boiardo's Orlando Inamorato.

I am told that this was an error, and will be fixed in the overnight (UK time) update of their territory database for the website. Try again this evening (USA time) and it should work! (Fingers crossed here and at HC as well).

One last comment, and then I'll quit blabbing about my books....

If anyone actually is interested in purchasing one, feel free to PM me and we can work out a price outside of ebay. I could pass on the savings of not paying ebay fees to the buyer, which would sweeten the deal. Also, I would be willing to sell either the medium blue one that is currently on ebay, or the dark blue one shown in my previous post. I only ever intended to keep only one of them, I just couldn't decide which one to have made, so I did one of each. They both turned out lovely, so I would be quite happy to keep either one.

Thanks for reading, and I hope that no one minds my use of this forum to show these books. I don't mean to turn it into a classified ad. This is truly the only Tolkien related forum that I enjoy, and I feel that the contributors actually 'contribute' to the collecting community. Thanks!
