Yesterday, my copy has arrived. It looks very good, and the inside (and outside too of course) is of high quality. The pages are quite strong but make it a bit hard to read though... But I'm not going to read in this one!

There was a cut in the envelope, but no damage was made to the book or slipcase because of that.

As an aside as these must be out of copyright by now, have any digital recordings ever been made of Tolkien from the 78 LPs?


Not that I have found or know of, but I'm not a very long time 'into Tolkien'

It's actually the like of communication from HC that irritates me more than anything. My email to them was perfectly courteous and (thus far) hasn't even merited a response. All they really needed to say was something to the effect of "Yep, we screwed up on the FAQ - you can return the books if you like and we will pick up the postage, plus we'll sort out the FAQ ASAP".

It's customer service 101 and just doesn't seem like a hard thing to put right, really. I'm glad to see that they have killed the website, though, as it least that stops anyone else getting stung.

Sorry I have been so quiet, been a bear at work recently.

I have politely inquired for help through various channels at HC, but haven't heard anything back yet either.

Also, interestingly, the tolkien.co.uk store is gone again, with a page saying that it will be available in December. Appears they are doing a relaunch, or at least a rework of the site. Perhaps the issue will be addressed on the new FAQ.

Well, I'd say they would be worth somewhat more with the booklets. On the other hand, Beren says his prices are indications for good reasons. Among others, he is dependent upon what the sellers want to ask, and the affair of the 'postcard behind the chimney in Branksome, Poole' has shown that they can ask rather more than he thinks sensible.

Nevertheless, probably a good idea to insure.
