I agree with you Dior, I have one of the Guides on the bedside table, and I find myself seriously wanting to have a stack of other books there for cross reference.

Don't think I can get time off work, though. We will be travelling to China soon (who knows, any time in the next few months, as soon as a few weeks...) to bring home our new daughter.

Does this mean you want me to generate calendars out of thin air for you? I thought you already had them all...

I am making progress on the New Line Cinema calendar data dump I was blessed with.

Not really a collectible (at least not yet, who knows, maybe people will be buying and selling characters and items from the game somewhere down the line, or the boxed software may be many years from now) but I just got invited to participate in the remainder of the beta test for the next few months.

I had a chance to play it for a few hours last month, and it was really buggy but still playable, as expected for a beta. I had fun, but wasn't totally blown away (yet).

How many others out there are in to the massive multiplayer games? This will be my first, I'm more into seeing what they have done with the license than staying up till four AM every night hunting orcs. (I do have a soft spot for good first person immersive games, though.)

In my humble opinion, here's my thoughts on this auction.

- The seller has a pretty good reputation.
- The letter is quite likely real (hard to tell, not being able to see the paper itself to tell if it is 35 years old).
- As Parmastahir mentions, this was likely typed up by a secretary, especially given the late date (Tolkien wasn't up to doing all of these sorts of short notes himself in later years.)
- It is quite possible that the signature was done by a secretary as well (ghost signature) as the intended recipient would only care that the thought came from JRRT, not a collectible signature.
- All handwriting experts who happen by please sign up to be a resident expert.

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. )
