Khamul said
all of us have bought a book that we have no intention of physically reading. So we're all nuts!...


Can't agree more! And I love being nuts. Well, at least "Tolkien nuts". Those people who collect other books really are nuts.

Another point that Rowns raises (or at least alludes to) is: why not just ignore the initial clamour, and pick up a copy at a later date; either discounted, or even on the second hand market. It won't cost you any more money.


For this, I would like to clarify that I am specifically talking about S&G if it is released at 500 copies. And, to be completely honest, even S&G will be selling on the second hand market at a premium (i.e. above list price) somewhere down the road - it will be a stunning book as far as construction, the content will be good, and it will be signed by a highly desirable author - it just may take a few (or many) years to find 501 people who want to own one long term. Plus a few will be lost to damage or postal gremlins.

A fan knitted a very impressive looking sweater with Tolkien motifs. Check it out!

Anthony and Jessica have launched a blog for Heren Istarion, that should hopefully be easier to maintain and update than the (still active) herenistarion.org website. Looking forward to seeing more content there guys!

Sadly, as appears now to be the norm for HarperCollins, you can't buy the book on their website because they have not listed it. www.tolkien.co.uk seems to have a very limited range of books, by no means all that are available from HarperCollins.

I find it difficult to believe that no-one from HarperCollins looks at this site, they could be so much better by asking and listening to visitors to the site for guidance.

I hope they can by end of this month (March 2009) give us a chance to buy it at the reduced price.

UPDATE

It is possible to buy it now.

Trotter is correct. Her maiden name is Suffield. You can see the entire Tolkien Family Tree on wikipedia here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tolkien_family#Tolkien_family_tree

Jane Suffield (1872-1963) is above JRRT and to the left in their graphical representation.
