I doubt it. I don't think the Estate would authorise it, even if they wanted to.

Congratulations! :)

My wife and I chose to have cats instead of humans, which is quite enough for me -- but like your new addition will be, they are a thousand times more important and enjoyable than Tolkien or books.

Welcome to the poverty club.

I believe the correct approach is to simply remove the page. Wait, with that level of dishonesty, I could become a book dealer.

Actually, if you do look at the pictures from one of the more prominent dealers, you do often see a lot of little bits of eraser residue where things have been "tidied up"... Unfortunately it does tend to leave a shiny finish in areas that otherwise would have been flat, so it a naughty practice.

I'm interested to get the views of anyone who has read the "official" version of Aotrou and Itroun, and also the Serbian/English version.

So far, my feeling is that the Serbian/English version is a far more enjoyable read. The HarperCollins version is - as usual with the official books - overburdened with dry padding. Do I really need a footnote to tell me what a Phial is or what Reave means? Really? Do we have to footnote commonly known words, now?

The HarperCollins release also has the Corrigan Poems, of course, so it is worth having both. If I only had to have one, it would be the Serbian edition (with its sometimes clumsy English).

One of these books is a product, and the other is a labour of love. They are both worth having, mind.
