Oof! I didn't see that coming. I'm sorry to hear it.

I am sad to have to report that both the book and event have been canceled by ADC books.

Hi, I am sorry to have to advise that despite the tremendous work and dedication to this project by Angela Gardner, Neil Holford, the Publishers, designers, artists, and financial backing by ADC Publications Ltd I have no choice but to cancel the publication of the book for legal reasons. Despite many revisions and changes made at the insistence of The Tolkien Estate it appears that The Tolkien Estate will seek to take court action to prevent the release of this book regardless. Everyone involved in the publication has worked hard to meet the requests of The Tolkien Estate time and time again, however it would be misleading to release a Biography on Hilary Tolkien without proper reference to his close relationship with his brother. The launch event on Saturday 4th December has therefore been cancelled and a full refund will be made shortly to anyone has placed advanced orders. Best wishes Andrew Compton


My regrets to all who have been involved in this project, I know how much time and work went into the book.

The Ballantine paperback does have illustrations by Keith Henderson - as does our copy of the first American Worm Ouroboros from 1926. The Ballantine cover art appears to be by Barbara Remington, in the style of her Tolkien covers, though without any BREM signature or other indication of the artist on or in the book.

Here's something new (to me)

http://cgi.ebay.com/Worm-Ouroboros-bo ... Books&hash=item27b66058e4

The vendor says the cover art is by Henderson, the original artist for LotR. Which is nonsense; but this cover does seem like a rip-off of the Remington covers for Ballantine. Acording to a quick google, Henderson was Eddison's brother-in-law, so it's unlikely that he did the cover. I suspect the book contains prints of his original illustrations. Can anyone shed more light on this?
