Interesting. I wonder what became of the lone bidder on the last auction. Perhaps they miscounted the zeroes before hitting the bid button.

Apparently they have "already received negative input" - small wonder.

But don't you realize that this set comes with Hadhafang, the sword of Arwen? Surely you all remember the stirring account in The Fellowship of the Ring of how Arwen held the point to Aragorn's throat?
And in case you were wondering, Hadhafang means "throng cleaver" (though I guess with Liz Tyler playing Arwen, "thong cleaver" might have been more apt).

I had a similar experience a few years ago with a seller on ABE. They listed an earlier printing of The Hobbit at a very good price (<$30) so I ordered it immediately. I waited for over a month and the item never appeared. When I notified the seller they immediately refunded my money and stated that it "must have been lost in the post". When I enquired as to any tracking information they had to see where it had disappeared, I was informed that they had no such information. I suspect the seller simply returned my money and sold the book to someone else at a much better price.
