Anthony and Jessica have launched a blog for Heren Istarion, that should hopefully be easier to maintain and update than the (still active) herenistarion.org website. Looking forward to seeing more content there guys!

Sadly, as appears now to be the norm for HarperCollins, you can't buy the book on their website because they have not listed it. www.tolkien.co.uk seems to have a very limited range of books, by no means all that are available from HarperCollins.

I find it difficult to believe that no-one from HarperCollins looks at this site, they could be so much better by asking and listening to visitors to the site for guidance.

I hope they can by end of this month (March 2009) give us a chance to buy it at the reduced price.

UPDATE

It is possible to buy it now.

Trotter is correct. Her maiden name is Suffield. You can see the entire Tolkien Family Tree on wikipedia here:

Jane Suffield (1872-1963) is above JRRT and to the left in their graphical representation.

Jane Neave was the sister of Tolkien's Mother Mabel, so she would be "Yi" in Chinese.

I'm trying to translate Tolkien's essay "On Fairy-stories" into Mandarine. In the "editor's introduction" of this book, the editor mentions that one of Tolkien's letters which is to her aunt Jane Neave.

But, there are four words in Chinese with different meanings but each has the same meaning with "aunt" in English. They mean: 1)mother'sister("Yi"); 2)fater's sister("Gu"); 3)mother's brother's wife("Jiu-ma"); and 4) father's brother's wife("Shen").

So, I'd like to know the "aunt Jane Neave" is which kind of "aunt" of Tolkien. This could help me to translate the essay better and exacter, and eventually makes Chinese people know more about Tolkien and his theory, his achievement and his greatness.

Thanks very much~
