It is not even released yet, but you can get signed copies of Jemima Catlin's Hobbit from Mark Faith, would it not be better if HarperCollins issued signed copies (they do have a website tolkien.co.uk), and not have to pay a £12 markup on the Amazon price from Mr Faith

eBay Item #231033693012

If you want a signed copy, then it may be worth waiting to see what does appear on tolkien.co.uk


I actually ordered one of these copies from Mark Faith, as being in Australia it was either that or wait to see what HC did (and HC have just finally put 100 signed copies up at GBP 20.00 each). As I'm moving in two weeks, I really wanted to get the book sooner, rather than later, so I decided to pay the extra 9 quid over the RRP. With the amount of money I am vaporising at the moment (buying new house, car, moving possessions, wife and cats between countries), 9 pounds didn't really register :)

Anyway, credit where credit is due. Mark shipped the book when he said he would, it was packed in a solid box and he honoured the 6 Pounds standard international shipping he had specified, despite the postage paid sticker showing he paid out GBP 18.95 on postage. So yeah, I could have acquired it a little cheaper by waiting for HC to get their act together, but I have no complaints on this transaction (and no one forced me to pay the uplifted price).

Of all the little Tolkien sayings that have become popular because of the movies, the one I hate the most is "Not all those who wander are lost".

It had specific relevance in the book, but now it appears on all kinds of crap as if it is some piece of important philosophy.

Which it isn't - It is just a glib statement when you stick it on a pendant or a T-shirt.
