If Beren can not (or will not) declare this a forgery, what is a mere mortal to think of it? The typewriter would not seem to matter. It would seem that JRRT (if this is genuine) was responding to correspondence typed up by a secretary at Allen&Unwin and made ready for his signature. But I have not ever seen that "T" (not that I have seen very many of his signatures) - Beren has many genuine ones in his collection, what thinkest thou?) and the color of the ink would make me think twice. What the TCG needs is a handwriting expert on staff. Jeremy, when you're not too busy, could you dig one up?

That is about what i found out before I was told it would not appear... If it happens it will be published it must be ordered through tolkien.co.uk
This site will be much better then the old one, is aimed to be a news source and much more up to date. It will also be used to sell special editions... i hope also lots of contests and giveaways!

Any more questions?

With regards to where the Signed Edition will be available for purchase: Here is a reply I received a couple of weeks ago from someone in Harpercollins.

"This £250 limited edition, if it happens, will be available exclusively via HarperCollins.co.uk and not available anywhere else. It's still speculative, so does not have a pub date assigned to it yet. It will probably come in the autumn, certainly not in April 2007."

Interestingly, the reply stated (though I did not ask) that it would be priced at £250. Though I imagine that the price could change (if indeed this edition ever makes it to print), but it looks that they are aiming to price it at £250.

How many copies of the various versions of COH are going to be published in the first printing?

I'll repeat vidugavi's question as an important one (if and when a signed edition ever comes out): "where and how would one purchase one?"

Any news on a movie for COH? (HarperCollins is probably not part of those negotiations if they are even taking place, but might as well ask. )

Here are a few questions from me:

Are there any plans for a collection of Ted Nasmith art, similar to those of John Howe and Alan Lee?

I noticed a large type edition of The Children of Hurin on Amazon. Will this be in the same style as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings from 2002-2003? Any chance of a large type Silmarillion?

This is an old chestnut, and might be from before David Brawn's time at HarperCollins, but were any copies of the hardback edition of The Peoples of Middle-earth pulped?

Over the years there have been various reports about Christopher working on a collection of the Professor's poetry. Does David know any more?
