To inaugurate the Research Questions forum, here is what I am looking for help on:

Can anyone provide leads on prior articles, books, websites, newsgroup discussions, etc. that discuss what Saruman and Radagast are (since Tolkien never makes it clear to my knowledge if they are Maiar or not)?

Direct discussion of the question and possible answers is of course welcome here too - no need to to have sources for your opinions!

Thanks Fangorn,

I had missed those titles on my quick pass because they are not currently listed on the Easton website. More to add to the Guide....

Given the high quality clamshell cases being offered with the HC Super Deluxe CoH, and the occasional slipcase or clamshell case offered with high end Tolkien books on eBay and from antiquarian dealers, I have been thinking recently that I have some books I would like to give an extra bit of protection without modifying the book (no rebindings, no reproduction dustjackets, etc.)

Anyone ever done this, and have recommendations of binders that do this sort of work? Google searches offer way too much noise to information so I haven't found anything really useful online yet.

Any opinions on this? Do you like books that have slipcovers or clamshells (original to the book or added after)?

If you have received your copy (or copies), you may want to take a peek at the book itself and see if you have a flaking foil problem. More can be read about it here:

http://www.tolkien.co.uk/forum.aspx?g=posts&t=502

But to sum up, HC is offering to replace the book with another copy (a higher number). This may not be limited to just that one copy, and it would be very sad to find out that you have a damaged book after HC has sold out...
