Hmm, I will probably pass this one. Too speculative for my taste. From the Amazon description: "With careful examination of Tolkien's existing biographies and the inadequacies of the explanations given and perpetuated from one biographer to the next, a persuasive picture is built up of what Tolkien may have been involved in over a period of decades. The writings themselves are amongst the most revealing proof of Tolkien's preoccupation with espionage and Intelligence and they are analysed closely and carefully"

Just a reminder that you can now buy the October 2014 Journal of Inklings Studies.


Thanks, Trotter! I've been checking their website regularly, but had failed to see that it's now available -- didn't want to miss out on this one!

Anyone knows in which book this version of "Oliphaunt" was published?

The auction just says that it "came from a children's book back in the 60's or 70's".

The price on this set has fluctuated a lot the last time. I placed a pre-order back on 8 May at Amazon, and paid £65.85 including shipping to Sweden. On its publication day, it was up to £70.00 (if I remember correctly), and today I see that it's down to £58.50, excluding shipping.
