Hey all,

Geektown (www.geektown.co.uk) was given a copy of the signed limited deluxe Children of Húrin to give away - you can enter through mid-December.

http://www.geektown.co.uk/2008/11/28/ ... ren-of-hurin-competition/

You have to be 18 years old and live in the UK to enter.

Funny that it is to promote the launch of the tolkien.co.uk store, which as we all know is already down due to "technical issues". Still, a free copy of a £350 book is nothing to sneeze at. They offered me a tidbit to promote the site launch as well, but I haven't posted anything quite yet for obvious reasons.

Have at!

Khamul, what Beren said on another forum (it was a Dutch one), related to my main reason for complaining to HC, namely that The LotR Poster Collection wasn't included in the package. I only added the numbering issue in support of everyone here.

Beren pointed out that the books had been mailed from Sweden (in his case, but mine also were) and added (slightly jocularly) that I should expect the posters to come from Italy. So I decided to wait a couple of days for a second package before phoning. So, no secret at all, but nothing relating to the 'limited numbered edition' issue.

With regard to the latter, I think we can rely on Beren to take up the matter with David Brawn and Alan Lee.

I still have difficulty to take myself seriously as a collector, and I don't really care that much about this issue to become angry. However, I still think HC have come a cropper over this, and I'm behind you in trying to get some acknowledgment out of them. I'd like to see what is going to happen.
