(I'm possibly imagining this! )
To be honest with you, I think even this is a fake:

Signed JRR Tolkien's the Children of the Hurin

What does everyone think?
First image: Suspicious Lee signature
Remaining images: Better AL examples (perhaps)

I have quite a few Alan Lee signed CoH's, and this one just doesn't seem right. Too heavy, and deliberate. Out of interest, anyone have a note of where Lee was the week of launch?

He was at the launch in London on Tuesday 17th April. He was at the ADCbooks preview party on the evening of the 20th, and the next day on the 21st (the only private signing he attended.) I think he was in Oxford Friday daytime. And I remember he was at a Forbidden Planet at some point during the week too. Incidentally, Lee doesn't seem to have been too consistent with his abbreviated month, using either '04' or simply '4'.

With all these suspicious signatures, I'm beggining to wonder (as someone has already pointed out) whether it is entirely wise to discuss in such detail what's 'suspicous' about these signatures on this site. Hmmm...

I think most people on this site will know what a podcast is, but just in case it is an audio or video file that you can download to your computer or portable device and listen to -Trotter

Portable device? Not sure I have one of these...
(seriously, I don't)

Thanks for information Trotter. Had been meaning to invest some time listening to some of the stuff out there for a while now. Think I'll start with The History of Rome though...

Aye, watching Antiques Road Show, as you do, and look what turns up. Tolkien also got another mention later on. First thing I thought was bet someone will have this up on TolkienGuide tonight!. And, Wellinghall promptly provides. With their especial interest in Baynes, I do hope Wayne & Christina can get a look at the clip (for all it's worth). The estimate sounded reasonable enough.

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.
