I don't think the little books are worth getting too stressed about. They only contain one chapter. I really think HC and HM are big and bad enough to look after themselves.

This looks like a rip-off on several levels -

- is it worth bothering our heads about?

I agree but as we have said before a book /any item is only worth what someone will pay at that time. I too wouldnt mind this book but not enough to pay circa £400. Bidding early sometimes works well as other bidders believe their is more interest thus are put off. I have brought some good bargains using this tatic before.
I think we will find in a few years this and the LOTR signed AL copy will both come down in price.
£175 for the LOTR deluxe doesnt seem to bad and at current rates a goodprice i would say.
Sounds like you collection is building SonOf Dolf

I do like the Song of Ice and Fire series, though I haven't read the fifth book yet. I definitely agree with the "soap opera" description from Stu, but sometimes that works for me!

I also am really enjoying the Kingkiller Chronicles by Pat Rothfuss, but only the first two books are out yet, so be warned if you can't stand waiting. If he can sustain the story to the end and wrap it up cleanly, this will be a classic in my mind.

Neither are replacements for (or even in the style of) Tolkien.

I just sold my spare copy of "A Game of Thrones" a few months ago, or else I might have been able to help you out SonOfDolf. Sorry!
