Well, we can't expect reporters to actually do research on their subject, can we, W&C? ;)

I notice this bit in the Telegraph version of the article (http://bit.ly/m818w): "A record of [Tolkien's] training carries the word ''keen'' beside his name." This leads the GCHQ historian to remark that ''While he didn't sign up as was probably intended, he did complete three days' training and was 'keen' to do more." I think it plain that "keen" was written only to indicate the pronunciation of "Tolkien" (distinguishing it from "kine")....

I noticed this morning that the e-book editions of The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún are now available, at least for the Kindle (on Amazon.com, of course).

The e-books are indeed available on Amazon, and work on the Kindle. (I have them on mine right now.) Well worth the cost just to finally be able to search the text!
