I would have to say No, I don't think it is a real Tolkien signature and is a forgery.

It does not look right when compared with genuine Tolkien signatures, to my mind appears to be a pretty poor fake.

A real problem, is that 4 dots appear in the signature, only three should be in the location that they are, the last one should be after the signature, and they are all in wrong place on the signature.

What do others think?

That is what they told me, not this year but possibly 2016.

A reminder that The Story of Kullervo is out tomorrow at least in the UK.

I have asked HarperCollins if they plan to do a Deluxe edition as well.

Very quick reply, No plans at the moment, but if they do a Deluxe edition it would be next year, 2016.

It looks to be a very poor effort on behalf of the Forger
