I will have a think about how to offer alphabetical and chronological options. You have a good point there.

One of the pieces of information I have entered for each item in the database is the section of Wayne Hammond's bibliography it fits into, i.e. A, B, C , D, E, F.
My original idea was to include a drop down menu on the gallery page that would allow you to filter what was displayed. I played around with it for days but couldn't get it to work properly. I didn't have many entries in the database at the time, so I might revisit the idea and have another crack at it.

Thanks for the offer of assistance - I will bear it in mind - working with php and phpmyadmin has been quite a step up from good old html, so I'm a bit out of my comfort zone.

PS. The package of goodies arrived - great stuff, thanks!

I am going to be there on Monday. The pictures in the book are excellent so I am really looking forward to seeing the originals, and hopefully getting Alan to doodle some pictures in my books.

I agree it can spoil it, but I wonder what the Estate could have done to stop this, booksellers have the book and they want to sell it, and it is in a lot of stores. They don't really care about arbitary deadlines.

I hope that people like me who do have the book, do not spoil it for people who don't, we'll see.

I know about seventeen stores now who are selling the books... lovely how a world wide release can be spoiled!

That's interesting, I am sure that Foyles will have got into serious trouble with the Tolkien Estate for selling the book before the embargo.

I hope that the Tolkien Library is taking orders for books and delivering on Tuesday so they do not also get into trouble for breaking the embargo.
