OK, Sorry to continue to bore people with the differences between Australian and UK editions, but my copy of the trade FoA arrived today, and I could swear that the paper quality is much better than the one I looked at in the bookstore here. So I am now going to have to swing by the store again to examine the paper to see of their is in fact a distinct export edition printed on lower quality paper (like the 1st of the Pocket Hobbit that we got out here before the UK, which was printed on recycled toilet paper).

Yes, I have too much time on my hands...

Unfortunately, I resigned from my job in Australia to move to NZ and then had to defer the move by three months (because of my wife's work), so I now have a nice easy life of riding my bike (50-70ks a day), writing modern-technology ports of old 1980s video games (just to keep my hand in with software development) and trying to find "useful" activities to fill in the remaining hours of the day so I can justify not tidying the house or doing any actually useful activities. I even watched ALL the Inspector Morse episodes over the last couple of months. And they are about seventeen hours long each episode...

Stu,

Well done on how your are finding 'useful' activities.

By the way informing us on Tolkien books is very, very useful

Has anyone else yet got the Deluxe Fall of Arthur, it is a noticeably thin book in comparison with the other Deluxe titles, and my copy seems to struggle with coming out of the slipcase.

It does include the facsimile page, please see Findegil's article on this.

and thanks for the reference to this site

On the subject of the layout (I'm going interior this time) of The Fall of Arthur, I have an issue with the Appendix (just got my copy of the UK standard edition today):

In the HoMe volumes, J.R.R. Tolkien's texts are always rendered in a larger font, in order to easily distinguish it from editorial comments. However, in the Appendix of FoA, I can't notice any such distinction -- J.R.R. Tolkien's lecture is printed with the same font size as Christopher's comments. Is it only I who find this a bit confusing?
