Interesting; thanks for posting Trotter.

I'm always curious as to what permissions are sought or given for publishing such things. I think it's been mentioned here before, in regard to the publishing of extracts only & also for auction houses to show letter(s) content simply by the fact that they've photographed them; the content of Tolkien's letters, regardless of who owns them, resides, from a copyright perspective, with the Tolkien Estate; does it not? Would permission have been sought here? Or is the content too redacted &/or insignificant? Just curious...

Copyright is indeed retained by the Tolkien Estate. Snippets could most likely be posted under the "Fair Use" doctrine, but anything more sizeable (such as printing an entire letter) would certainly require permission.

If you look at the scan of the letter, you will see the permission granted by the Tolkien Estate on the right.

Though from a magazine that deals with writing and copyright for writers, then you would expect them to get this right.

I've been trying to order a copy through the site, but despite 10 or so tries, I can't get it to accept my order. After I enter my credit card info and hit the button to process the order, it returns to the cart view, and doesn't actually place the order (so far as I can tell).

Had anyone else in the US successfully placed an order?

Thanks,

Carl

(FWIW, using the Safari browser on my Mac)

I have had a few members state that they are having issues with the on-line ordering system, I have passed these issues onto the editor for them to look at.

I had the same problem, trying to order the issue with Firefox browser. But it worked for me, using Chrome browser, if it can help.
