Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull have updated their website and here given the updated release dates for the Companion and Guide. 2 November for Harper Collins UK and later in the month for Houghton Mifflin. Christina Scull recently had surgery which delayed the book slightly and I'm sure we would all wish her all the best and a speedy recovery.

There is also a list of the main topic headings for Volume II just to wet your appetite.

There is also some information about the Tolkien Collector and an annotated collection catalogue of Pauline Baynes.
here's the link
Wayne and Christina's website

I'm getting more and more excited about this book and I'm counting down the days

This was posted on YAHOO.com today. Did anyone know that Christopher Tolkien was still working on his father's works?
Can't wait for this to be releases!!



NEW YORK - An unfinished tale by J.R.R. Tolkien has been edited by his son into a completed work and will be released next spring, the U.S. and British publishers announced Monday.

Christopher Tolkien has spent the past 30 years working on "The Children of Hurin," an epic tale his father began in 1918 and later abandoned. Excerpts of "The Children of Hurin," which includes the elves and dwarves of Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and other works, have been published before.

"It has seemed to me for a long time that there was a good case for presenting my father's long version of the legend of the `Children of Hurin' as an independent work, between its own covers," Christopher Tolkien said in a statement.

The new book will be published by Houghton Mifflin in the United States and HarperCollins in England.

J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" has sold more than 50 million copies and was also adapted into a blockbuster, Academy Award-winning trio of films. A stage version is scheduled to open next year.

Thanks for the info. I bought the book from a small bookshop about 3 hours away from where I live. I get to go there once or twice a year and it always has something of interest.

I paid $7 Australian.
Thanks again.

I recently bought a copy of Essays and Studies 1953 and I was wondering if someone can give me an idea of the books worth. It has two small tears on the spine (0.5cm), the rest of the book and dust jacket has no other faults although there is a small neat inscription.

I have looked on abebooks and there are only two listed; an ex library copy for $245 US and the other is listed as a fine copy for $883 US...both these prices seem very excessive.

Thanks

"The book belonged to Tolkien's cousin Seymour Horowitz, who I have been told is currently 95 years old and living in Florida. This book is from his estate, and is a wonderfully signed piece. "

This sounds familiar, I'm pretty sure this book has been up on ebay before or at least the description.
