You can read this here

Some points I found interesting.

HarperCollins are using print on demand now for some titles, so smaller selling titles like the History of Middle-Earth 12 volume hardbacks will be always available for sale.

David states that they are going to reprint Letters in Hardback, presumably with the index that Wayne and Christina produced for the paperback edition, which would make a much better hardback copy of the book than the first edition. I also think Humphrey Carpenter's Inklings and Biography should be reissued as hardbacks.

What other hardbacks do people think should be republished?

Not so happy with this comment from David

"I am afraid the audiobook of The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun is not currently scheduled for publication"

That looks like a diplomatic answer to the question, something obviously happened with this as Brian Cox recorded the book, shown on David's video trailer for the book (36 seconds into the video below).
Does anyone know who Brian Cox's agent is to get his side of the story?



It also looks like the Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun was the final "new" book to be released from the comments from David.

The date for the new releases of this book is tomorrow (4th March). I notice still no indication as to what the Index Hardback DustJacket looks like.

It appears that Amazon are discounting some of the books by 25% and it looks like they will probably do this with all the new titles so if you want any of the books you may want to wait until they are discounted. If you are going to buy a copy from Amazon, please use the links below as it helps support this site.

Sadly no longer available from Amazon, so deleted buy from Amazon

I hope you are not suggesting that this bid is by "Dr Higgins"?

I can't believe that some idiot has actually bid on this item, it's 100% fake
