Sort of. I was involved in a lot of online posting in regard to the LotRs films; I quite liked pulling them apart. That said, I went and saw each film more than a couple of times. The Hobbit? Not sure if I'm too bothered. It'll not be the end of the world if I miss them; but, like LotRs, I'll probably go & see them a few times. Also, as a side interest, I do know someone who's been working on the production...

Garm, I too have that Fleiger Hb sitting on the 'to read' shelf; it's been there for quite a while now, along with Tolkien Studies 2009 (I haven't even bought TS 2010 yet!). Tolkien criticism just leaves me totally bored at present; sorry...

Bit slow in posting here, but previous to a few days ago I hadn't really had any remarkable finds. But, I just bought (another) GA&U (staff copy) CT signed Silmarillion last week for £5! Seller, upon questioning, stated...

" The signature " Christopher Tolkein " appears on the first free end paper. The signature is clearly and neatly written. I can not guarentee, but I think it is likely, that the signature is actually an authentic signature of Christopher Tolkein, who is the editor of this first edition of the book which was published four years after the death of the author. Christopher Tolkein is, as far as I can deduce from the foreword, the son of the author.

Yes, I think he is J. R. R. Tolkien's son; & needless to say, Christopher didn't spell his surname incorrectly...

Can we assume the story of Angie talking to Rayner, and he running it by CT (btw, hope the old gent had a good 86th the other day...), is rubbish?

Red, speaking of UK & US editions (and avoiding the whole so-called Hb 'Canadian' (i.e. Export) edition), there is also an Unwin 1979 Pb (like the UK Pb), but printed in Canada...
