I can't say I like the idea, much (no disrespect to you). Just because Tolkien enjoyed or was influenced by a work doesn't really qualify him to have his name stuck on the cover (even as a series title). It just seems misleading to me. Edit: Also not sure how the Tolkien Estate would feel about it?

If you do not like I dont want to argue about it, since is a matter of personal taste.

The books edited together, at least for me, will be a good addition, since it allows me to understand some sources of Professor Tolkien.

Copyright: There is no problem, since will not use any text written by Tolkien without permission of Estate. The only thing really coming from Tolkien is his name in some part of backcover or frontcover. And names are not copyrighted.

There are already books like that. As the Penguin publisher has already made​​, but they published just few books.

I'll leave you to it, but be aware the estate are notoriously touchy and litigious in such matters. I'm not interested in arguing, either, by the way.

Names can't be copyrighted, but "Tolkien" is trademarked.
