The website is meant to be launched properly next week, I believe on Tuesday the 18th, which is why no emails have been sent yet.

However, looking at the website as it currently stands, I am very disappointed as it certainly does not have all the currently available HC Tolkien offerings on it.

Where are this years calendar and diary, what about the new paperback Silmarillion, etc. ?

I am not sure what HC are trying to achieve with this site, Amazon has a much better selection and in nearly all cases are cheaper than this web site, so the only items I would buy are 'exclusive' items and they had them on the old site.

Is there going to be anything different between this signed 'exclusive' deluxe, and the normal deluxe?; besides the signed page. I'm wondering whether to bother keeping my order for the 'normal' deluxe, on Amazon, standing or not.

I agree, this site offers nothing at present (besides the promise of these exclusives) that Amazon doesn't; besides slightly higher prices...

The only difference is that it will be signed and numbered by Alan Lee. Other than the hand-writing will be identical and twenty pounds more expensive than Amazon. For the sake of the extra GBP20, I would say it's probably worth getting a signed copy, but I wouldn't be paying much more than that - especially as Alan Lee signs so many books at events, anyway.

With regards to keeping your Amazon order open, I cancelled mine...:)

Just received my copy of the book.

The FAQ on the http://tolkien.co.uk/Footer/Pages/FAQ.aspx website states that the book is signed and numbered by Alan Lee but this is not the case, it is only signed (not numbered) by Alan Lee on the title page.

It is identical to the other current editions but a light green colour and has a red, gold and silver foil motif designed by Alan Lee on the front cover.

Great to hear you got your book, Trotter. One question... Does it happen to have the nice hand-cut hole on the side like the Hobbit and LotR had, or is it solid like the CoH and Silmarillion?

Also, would love to see photos! I am afraid I must wait for my copy as I am stuck getting the Amazon version since Tolkien.co.uk will not ship this one to the U.S.
