Mark Terry will be recreating both the first and second facsimile Hobbit dust jackets to correct the problem with the runes that have been discovered.

It does appear to affect every copy that he has sold to date.

If you have a facsimile dust jacket and want to check them it is easy to do so, by looking at the lower right hand corner at the images below.

I am also happy to help if people have problems ordering the magazine.

It is a nice house, I assume that he found a recently abandoned Troll Cave full of gold to pay for it

These are scans of my 4th impression dust-wrapper.

On my Windows computer, I have a font called Perpetua, this seems to be a better than Times New Roman.

I have had a few members state that they are having issues with the on-line ordering system, I have passed these issues onto the editor for them to look at.
