I have to echo Beren's experiences here - been in contact with a lot of sellers (and buyers back in the day when you could see who they were) and never saw anything good come of it, so I don't do it all the time any more.

I'll see if I can work something out with eBay (know a lot of people there, their offices are about two miles from me) for a better reporting process, but not likely to get a lot of institutional support.

Hey all,

Geektown (www.geektown.co.uk) was given a copy of the signed limited deluxe Children of Húrin to give away - you can enter through mid-December.

http://www.geektown.co.uk/2008/11/28/ ... ren-of-hurin-competition/

You have to be 18 years old and live in the UK to enter.

Funny that it is to promote the launch of the tolkien.co.uk store, which as we all know is already down due to "technical issues". Still, a free copy of a £350 book is nothing to sneeze at. They offered me a tidbit to promote the site launch as well, but I haven't posted anything quite yet for obvious reasons.

Have at!

I am going to call Profiles in History to get a catalog sent to me (I believe they are $30, but have to confirm that.) Does anyone else (esp. those of you internationals) want a copy as well?

Sorry Findegil and Deagol,

I meant to follow up on this faster. The material in this thread is currently offline. Moving to email to discuss further.
