Houghton Mifflin was kind enough to provide two copies of the trade hardcover of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún for TCG to give away!

In order to be entered in the drawing, please post a response to this thread. If you are not a forum member, you can instead send a message (via Contact Us). In your message, help me gather links to online reviews, articles and blog posts about Tolkien's new book!

One entry per person will be counted, but don't let that stop you from sending me/posting whatever you have found. Duplicate links are fine - in fact, just posting a note that you like the book is fine too! Only obvious spam will not be counted.

The giveaway will run from now until Midnight May 31st (Pacific Time, GMT -7:00) when two random selections will be made from all valid entries. I have other things to give away in June (and hopefully monthly for a while after that) so don't stay away too long.

Your entry must include a valid email address so I can contact you if you are drawn as the winner. Your forum membership is sufficient for me to get in touch, so you do not need to post your email address in your post here! Shipping costs for the book are included in the giveaway.

Good luck! And thanks again to Houghton Mifflin for providing the books.

Thanks for the note. Have copies of both to provide some quick images?

Just an observation on the S&G Trade Edition binding:

Australian first print (Griffin Press) - Black boards, UK First Print - Brown boards. With CoH, the first print in Australia (which was printed by Printing Express in Hong Kong) had much higher quality boards than the UK 1st. This time, the Aus version seems marginally lower quality.

Nah, I don't mind them THAT much :) They seem to - for the most part - do a reasonable job of producing the actual books (certainly as well as any other publisher would these days). They just need to stop pretending to be a retailer, as they just haven't really got the skills or the systems to be one. And they need to shoot the guy who does their "website" (inverted commas purely because it isn't a website, so much as an online catalog with a payment provider link).

Once they have shot him, they need to reanimate him and shoot him again. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Poor old HarperCollins. At least they have the sense to publish a fine author. Altho' (Stu) you'd probably prefer if Tolkien was in someone else's stable!?

Jeremy, who are these secretive infiltrators anyway? That Brawn no doubt...
