Perhaps the following books:

But I was wondering if anyone here has more information or contact with publisher for more information.



Quite honestly, I think they should call it a day. It is a nice series, but the production quality of the later volumes is far below the quality of the earlier volumes (although to be fair the price has remained the same). If they released another volume and the slipcase sides continued the trend of shrinking, they would have to be zero size (which would be quite a trick).

I'd pay a bit more for something that sat between the absurdly expensive SD editions and the current not-quite-deluxe editions.

Would be good to know the print-run size for Unfinished Tales. I think we have it for all the other volumes.

Evidently, the paperback version of the Tolkien Encyclopedia has been released. Still pricey but a lot more reasonable than the hardback.

Any idea if this version has been reworked (including the extensive errata), as the original was not very well regarded?

I am also pretty certain that only first impressions were on the market on release day.


Seems a bit suspect.

In my wife's words, why does crackfic get published?

Wow, that is a worse idea for a book than any of my daft-ideas-that-never-quite-make-it-past-a-synopsis. And I have hashed together stories about evil Nazis using Jewish children as "canaries" for WW2 time/travel wormhole experiments, so I am fully experienced in bad ideas for fiction. I clearly should have added JRRT to the mix and I would have been onto a winner.

It looks externally identical (at first glance). What differences, if any, are we suggesting might exist between the set with 1st impressions of LR and this one (with 2nd impressions)?

I can't speak of the slipcase, but the books didn't look noticeably different than the 1st impressions. That said, I haven't seen them side-by-side.
