The Voyager books were very prominent in the shops from 2001 to maybe 2003, but faded away as stocks were exhausted - probably because they were not reprinted. There are still occasional copies (of the Tolkien titles) available if you hunt around. Minimal details of the four Tolkien titles in the series can be found at TolkienBooks.net, but you will find get a few extra details if you search using ISBNs at Amazon (or Google them).

Fellowship of the Ring
Two Towers
Return of the King
Silmarillion


Sorry about the lousy images - will get around to replacing them at some stage!

The same list of titles appears in all four books, even though they were published at different times, so I suspect that there were 36 books in the series.

I don't know anything of the printing history, and am not absolutely certain about the list of titles. I do know that The Lord of the Rings was available as three individual copies and in a box set, The Silmarillion came out in 2002, and I never saw any other titles (though, I wasn't looking for them). You could still find them new maybe a year ago, and remainder marked single copies are still out there. 'salliknow.

Around 2001, HarperCollins started a "Voyager Classics" series. Does anyone know how long this series lasted and where I might find a list of the books published? Thank s for your help.

Though the input is late in coming and perhaps not now useful, I've got a reply to "questions for you all"...

I usually go looking for information about a specific book or set that I've found f/s somewhere, so the added materials (not by or contributed by Tolkien) are usually extraneous, but they're certainly not in the way. The pages load quickly, and your viewers will notice that such information is there in case they want it in future, which they might not realize (or know to look for) otherwise. In short, no I don't think those entries are clogging the pages.
Personally, I use the back button rather than the arrows, since I'm usually looking at covers and/or publishers before dates (often I am looking to establish a correct date), even though date is often of little less importance to title, depending on what you're looking for. But others may have different reasons for visiting, so there's no reason not to leave the arrows... more functionality seems better than less.

If I may take the opportunity to say: if it weren't for tolkienbooks.net, the U.S. Guide might have become a PDF document and stayed on my computer. It was the incredible amount of information on your site and how often I use it that convinced me it was worth the effort to put ut online at all (not that it's anywhere near as detailed, but adequate, perhaps, for the fewer and more readily available U.S. editions). I'm glad now that I did, for as big of a project as it was getting the U.S. Guide to where it is today, people seem to find it useful. It's still nothing compared to your contribution. Hat's off sir... you have inspired us all.

you can't find this at Amazon with the ISBN, and wondering why I went looking for it. Anyone in the U.S. looking for a copy of JRRT & His Literary Resonances can it with two day shipping for a year.

It does not say what format /edition the book is - there's no ISBN included in the description. . .

UPDATE : they've already removed the buy button, so maybe they've realized their mistake. It was a bit sketchy to start with, but... I'll keep an eye on it, anyway.
