The Nielson BookScan data given in "The Decade Round-Up 2000-2009" (in The Bookseller) differs slightly.

Tolkien is 23rd overall by volume (4.9m)
10th overall by value (£47m)
& the only dead author in this (value) top ten list.

Aye, very funny indeed.

You could make this a yearly thing. Trotter's The Year's Work in Tolkien eBay Studies...

The Michael Tolkien item is definitely legitimate.

Although I haven't seen this particular item, orcraider has sold two Michael Tolkien items (on eBay) very recently both of which I had offered to me privately from a reputable PBFA/ABA book dealer. I know this dealer sold one or two through eBay, back in late 2007, and presume orcraider bought a few of these at that time. That aside, orcraider is an honest and reliable dealer; to be highly recommended.

Those careless Tolkiens!

That said, I think everybody is genuinely looking forward to what you two reveal in late March. No pressure...
