Without trying to overstate my enthusiasm for this book, I'd recommend this highly to anyone interested in the textual history of The Silmarillion. Familiarity with HoMe is required. But, it really is a landmark study I feel. Doug pulls no punches in his criticism. For me personally it was a very enjoyable read.

That said, the price, is rather on the high side. I got it on pre-order from Amazon.com for $39; but I gather it's quite a bit more than that now. Pieter is giving away signed Doug Kane bookplate/stickers for those who do buy a copy (or already have a copy).

Buy it!

Has anyone read "Arda Reconstructed: The Creation of the Published Silmarillion, by Douglas Charles Kane? Is it worth getting?

I noticed this morning that the e-book editions of The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún are now available, at least for the Kindle (on Amazon.com, of course).

I have a 1st/1st of UT which was stored in an A&U box (along with various other A&U titles) from new until about 4 years ago when I acquired it. It is absolutely mint with no fading, but I keep it stored in the dark to preserve the state. I can't imagine my copy is the only one that has been stored in darkness, so it is possible that is is genuine.
