Wonderful news Deagol!

Sorry for the late response, I have been on minimal background mode here for a while due to the day job.

Good to have you back, and I can't wait for the book!

Could I ask everyone to examine their 1977 dummy Silmarillion(s)? I'm looking for confirmation of a few points. Many of these probably go hand-in-hand, so the combinations likely are probably small.

Printer
Presumably Clowes. Anyone got a Billing copy?

Binding
Probably cloth. Any paper covered boards?

Jacket
Probably unpriced. Anyone have a priced dj?

Printed Pages
Up to pg. 32, or pg. 35. Anyone have anything else?

Publisher's Imprint
May state London/George Allen & Unwin Ltd/Ruskin House Museum Street. May state London/George Allen & Unwin/Boston Sydney. Or perhaps something else.

ISBN
Is the full ISBN present, or just (the publisher's prefix) 0 04

Chapters (Contents pg.)
How many are stated: 23 or 24 chapters?

[Beren, I realise you have an entirely blank dummy. None of the above really applies should you be reading this.]

Any information appreciated.

BH

This is slightly off topic for a Tolkien collecting forum but...

I just got a terrible sinking feeling that the website had got hacked again, after only 48 hours back online. All the ISBN numbers on the details pages had been taken over by a link to Skype and were trying to persuade me to call someone in Poland!

I have just got a new laptop and the oh so clever IE8 highjacks anything that looks like a contact number and converts it to a Skype link. Which genius thought of that we wonders... and why oh why is it set as default? Having never used Skype, it would have been nice if the feature had announced itself before it started merrily messing about with my webpages! Thankfully I have managed to workout how to turn off this "helpful" feature, so panic over.

[Cancels paranoia mode]

Thank you all for the kind words!

Normal service will be resumed soon. Contact page will be back up at the weekend hopefully, but in the meantime if you don't have my email address, feel free to ask questions or leave messages here and I will try to be helpful.
