This doesn't surprise me. I actually ordered two copies of the Super Deluxe CoH a couple of months ago and they were simply left at my doorstep! Fortunately, I have an enclosed breezeway of sorts, so nothing happened to them, but to leave two copies of that book with no signature requirement was surprising. I am assuming that since they dropped the price of shipping, they also dropped the quality of shipping service as well. My two copies only cost 5GBP (total) to ship the U.S.

Stu, would you care to let us know what number (of 500) you received of the limited deluxe CoH? Just interested to find out how close they are to sold out.

Edit: long-winded, rambling explanation replaced by concise version:

HC dispatched my Tolkien Deluxe Collection boxed set to the (currently unoccupied) Billing address on my order instead of the delivery address, and it sat outside the house (thanks to UPS requiring no signature) and went AWOL.

After some discussion with HC (which took a while as the person dealing with the Tolkien site was away), this has been resolved and they sent me a replacement set to the correct address.

Henry Gee sent this news along about the forthcoming issue of Mallorn from The Tolkien Society:


Dear All - I'm almost at the beginning at the end of pulling Mallorn 47 together, so much so that I can give you an idea of the contents. Please note that this might not be the final FINAL line-up, and might change subject to the vicissitudes of production.

Editorial: The Ode Goes Ever On - Henry Gee discovers poetry.

Letters to the Editor: Virginia Luling responds to David Doughan's article on the womens' movement (in M45) and Richard Gonsowski commends Murray Smith for his article on Roman Law (M46).

Reviews: Henry Gee on Dimitra Fimi; Lynn Forest-Hill on Caroline Davidson; David Doughan on On Fairy Stories; Joel Franz on Lynn Forest-Hill; Colin Duriez on the Tolkien Society 2005 volumes; and at least one more thing I can't remember (sorry).

Commentary; Dale Nelson on Tolkien and Rider Haggard; Franco Manni on History Real and Imagined; Alex Lewis on Fairy Stories; Lou Markos on the echoes of Homer in Tolkien - and yes, other stuff.

Poetry (yes, there will be some)

Fiction from Lynn Forest-Hill and RPG

Well I'm Back: Zak Cramer cooks up tasty seasonal recipes using dragon meat.
