I have it pre-ordered from the Book Depository. It is still showing as pending on my orders list and has not been cancelled as of yet, but it does show now as "currenty unavailable" on the main site. Must be a delayed publication.

I've just had an email from Amazon.co.uk, saying that Verlyn Flieger's "Green Suns and Faerie: Essays on J. R. R. Tolkien" is no longer available. Does anyone know anything more about this?

Thanks

Maybe you can get it for £205.36, but I have my doubts. I feel that this seller lists in print books automatically and does not hold stock. The book depository certainly do something similliar.

A number of times, I have tried to order some of the HoME POD's from the Book depository (which sometimes show as available), but each time my order has been cancelled. While I cannot say for certain, my feeling is that this may be the case with the dealer evo_gb

I still find it funny that funny that HC produced the SD S&G in an edition of 500, despite the already slow sales of CoH. They should really have paid attention to this forum, where the general consensus at the time was that 500 copies of an SD S&G was totally nuts. An edition of 250 would probably have sold quite quickly for either book, but once the number of copies starts to go up, the desirability drops.

They would probably have had better luck doing 250 SG followed by 250 signed deluxe Unfinished Tales (Same format, but with different coloured leather, assembled at same bindery for overall economies of scale). If they had done that, they would probably have sold them all. I would have bought a UT at any rate, so that would only have left 249.

Mind you, I just quit my job, so my book buying days are probably over....
