That fake item sold for $305.

I'd really like to see something done this year about fake signatures and letters on eBay as it appears to be so easy for sellers to knock up an item and find gullible and naive buyers for it.

This seller pretends to have three Tolkien signed letters all to different people for sale, one is a new fake, but the other two fakes have already been discussed, yet eBay does nothing about this (they are just interested in their commission from the sales).

For once, someone is actually honest. Very funny find.

The Nielson BookScan data given in "The Decade Round-Up 2000-2009" (in The Bookseller) differs slightly.

Tolkien is 23rd overall by volume (4.9m)
10th overall by value (£47m)
& the only dead author in this (value) top ten list.

The Power of Tolkien's Prose: Middle-Earth's Magical Style by Steve Walker

Has anyone ordered a copy of this? I was just wondering if it was any good, though it seems kind of pricey.
