The HarperCollins saga continues...

I will have say that the forementioned ".. dismal state of HarperCollins" must extend well beyond their web site. I received word today from a very exasperated friend, who after much struggle just received his long awaited Tales from the Perilous Realm Deluxe Limited Edition Signed Copies. After HC receiving payment for the order, all record of my friend's order just up and vanished. After succeeding emails and much dialog between he and HC Customer Service, the lost order was sorted out and his book order was posted to him. After a rather pensive wait filled with much apprehension his long awaited order arrived... ONLY to discover the books he received were not at all the Limited Signed Edition which he had ordered, but rather the regular Unsigned Deluxe editions.

At this posting the situation is yet unresolved...

Everyone, checkout Beren's website. There is a new Tolkien book coming out soon (edited, of course, by CT). For more info, go here: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/press/8 ... en_book_Sigurd_Gudrun.php

Here are a few images from the book.
The cover, an ogre and an dog - the dog illustrates one of those moments in the book when something Hilary has written clicks in with something already published. I won't spoil it for you, I'll let you wrack your brain for Tolkien-related dogs!

A review of the book should be in the next Amon Hen.
It should be available on Amazon, but orders can be placed with ADC Books.

Amazon are still showing a publication date of 30 January for this - do we know if this is real?

Christina and I have serious doubts about this signature. The script, even down to the blue ink, is very similar to that used in signatures recently discussed in this forum as forgeries. Beren is right, though, that the position of the signature, on the title-page of a book not by Tolkien himself, is suspicious. Also open to question is why Tolkien would have acquired a copy of Sweet’s reader published in 1946: yes, he knew Onions, and this was the first edition of Sweet revised by Onions, but by 1946 Tolkien would have had one or more editions of Sweet already as working copies, and with Michaelmas Term of that year he fully took up the duties of the Merton Professorship in which he no longer taught Anglo-Saxon.

I might mention that I’ve looked on eBay at other autographed items sold by the person offering this book, and am uncertain about some of those signatures as well.
