David Brawn has gotten back to me with some answers to questions I asked (mostly based on questions posed here in the forums or in private emails to me). I thought I would summarize here as well as tracking down all the threads and posting snippets all over the forums.

Sigurd and Gudrun Super Deluxe will be available to ship to the USA at the same time as the rest of the world, now that HC and Houghton Mifflin have an arrangement in place. Only the Super Deluxe editions are covered, though, so other titles/specials from tolkien.co.uk are still not allowed to ship to the USA.

He appreciated the feedback on pricing and number of copies for S&G - sounds like HC is still mulling those over a bit, so keep the discussion going! They are definitely interested in feedback now and in the future. Though I imagine they won't produce just twenty of them and give them out here for free.

Evidently he was not aware of the Tree and Leaf not being on the website yet as previously announced - that is being addressed now, so we should expect to see it there soon.

As for customer service/performance of Tolkien.co.uk as a retail site, it was good to hear from David that they have already changed the service provider they contracted with twice, always with better service in mind. They are definitely trying to get it right.

Good point Deagol! I certainly didn't mean to rag on your site.

I will keep an eye out for a jacketed copy just for posterity. Not going to look all that hard either.

The Daily Mail has reviewed the book - and has been very complimentary about it too.

For those of you interested in the Limited Deluxe Edition of the book, it will be published next month. Most copies have already been pre-ordered, so if you want a copy contact ADC Books soon.

The book is now at the printers. There will be a few corrections to the text, a new illustration from Jef Murray and some 'suitable words' from the editor, the illustrator and Chris Tolkien. The book will be cloth bound and will come in a slipcase. Should be hand numbered too I think.

I have a rather poor copy. It didn't get listed at TolkienBooks as it was only issued in the US. I haven't seen it in a jacket, but there again I haven't been searching for one that hard....

Goblin Feet (first appearing in Oxford Poetry 1915) has been reprinted quite a bit, but I just ran across an early reprint that I hadn't known about before:

The Open Door to Poetry: An Anthology edited by Anne Stokes, First Edition 1931, Charles Scribner’s Sons, pp 304

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270350031523

The eBay auction was rather pricey (and didn't get any bids) - I have seen this volume elsewhere online right now for $10-$20 in various conditions. Just didn't know it had "Tolkein's" Goblin Feet in it. This title isn't mentioned in Hammond or TolkienBooks.net so I thought I would share it (and add it to the guide.)
