Bah. I preferred the old maps, even if CT isn't a gifted artist. Frankly, I don't like change and the old ones were fine by me when I was a young 'un.

Now Trotter, you aren't being very generous to her, are you? She was clearly talking in *Geologic terms* when she stated "this edition didn't last very long". Clearly.

I don't think the little books are worth getting too stressed about. They only contain one chapter. I really think HC and HM are big and bad enough to look after themselves.

I haven't found any other fantasy that I don't dislike, to be honest. Tolkien doesn't feel fake like most fantasy in that the world of the third age is pretty normal really. I hated Song of Ice and Fire so much that I couldn't complete the first book. Soap opera fantasy is the worst kind. Still, if everyone liked the same stuff, it would be a dull world :)

SonOfDolf, I think putting your highest bid in at the last minute is the best bet, but putting a higher value than you think it is worth never makes sense. I would question whether the book is worth more than 300-325. It isn't rare and has a non-valuable signature. If you look at all the other bidders except you and the winner, they maxed out at 250. You thought 300 was the probable selling price, but chose to exceed that heavily in your max bid. I don't understand your bidding behaviour as - had you won - you would have overpaid.
