I updated the pre-order widgets (on the left side of TCG pages) with the latest title information from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

Quite a lot of new material planned for this year already!

Way (way) out of my price range, but someone did a stunning custom binding job on this Silmarillion!

Esteemed? Gosh, thanks! But more thanks for spotlighting the review — and Doug's book. Some of you may know that Doug co-founded the Hall of Fire website. He has an open forum there for discussion of the book, reviews, errata, etc. You can find it here:

http://www.thehalloffire.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=28

I know Doug welcomes feedback.

The Mythlore Review (by the esteemed Jason Fisher) is available online to read:

http://www.mythsoc.org/reviews/arda.reconstructed/

Very long and detailed review of the book. "Summing up, I find Arda Reconstructed to be a meticulously researched and valuable new reference work (one of all too few) on The Simarillion. If I have been hard on it, take that for engagement with the book and its author’s ideas, and not as discouragement to potential readers. "

Without trying to overstate my enthusiasm for this book, I'd recommend this highly to anyone interested in the textual history of The Silmarillion. Familiarity with HoMe is required. But, it really is a landmark study I feel. Doug pulls no punches in his criticism. For me personally it was a very enjoyable read.

That said, the price, is rather on the high side. I got it on pre-order from Amazon.com for $39; but I gather it's quite a bit more than that now. Pieter is giving away signed Doug Kane bookplate/stickers for those who do buy a copy (or already have a copy).

Buy it!
