I still need some tutoring on the derivation of the new name!


According to the Index in the back of The Silmarillon, Urulóki is a Quenya word meaning fire-serpent or dragon, very apt for Jeremy's avatar. I assume that Urulókë is the plural of dragons.

The new version of www.tolkien.co.uk is now live, first impressions are that it is a big improvement on the old site.

They now seem to be selling all the UK books with international shipping, are doing a 3 for 2 deal even on Super Deluxe copies, and it is the only place to buy the print on demand books (History of Middle Earth hardbacks).

Mind you, the Gandalf figure looks tasty


garm, you missed the First Edition of "The Hobbit"

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Hobbit-1st- ... ks_UK?hash=item2a061aa692

I love the quote on the Gandalf figure that he no longer has the shipping box, would have been more useful to state the weight of the item.

For serious collectors, probably the rarest Lord of the Rings Sideshow Weta collectables and the only one ever produced in solid Bronze


John Howe is producing, through Weta a limited edition of "Smaug" in bronze this year, at least £2000 cheaper though than the Gandalf bronze above.

Please check my other auctions for other rare Tolkien books. Which include the signed limited edition of this book


No they don't.
