I agree that sellers have a responsibilty to check their items before putting it up for sale......but it always amazes me that people are willing to part with their money without knowing about what they are bidding on

Each to their own I guess.

I believe he died last October. They still run the fruit farm that J R R Tolkien visited (to see Hilary). Chris(topher) Tolkien (Gabriel's son) is speaking at Andy Compton's Smile meeting this month. I assume he may be amongst 'the Tolkien family' 'passing by' the April ADCBooks event; as reported (update) by Andy on TolkienLibrary.com this week. His talk on Tolkien signatures may be of some interest.

Is anyone thinking of attending this event? Damn pity John Howe, Alan Lee (and even Roger Garland) may not be in attendance. The fact that Garland's art will all be there, some of the Tolkien family may attend, and that the event is bigger and will feature more book related displays/stands, is nearly convincing me to take the trip down; all 11hrs and 650 miles (round trip). Hmmm...

Sorry, buyers doing homework? What about sellers? Ebay seems to be teaming with sellers who are operating at a level below that of the aforementioned car boot sale. Tolkien has to be one of the best known fantasy writers of our time. What excuse could you possibly have, with access to the internet, for not looking up when the author died? No excuse... but pretty funny none the less .

At least the new Hobbit movie may be on the ropes!

Thanks for the heads up Deagol. I just bought it. Have it get my old VCR player out of storage now to watch it.
