>The Book Depository prices seem to have gone up. The cheapest UK price for the Pb still seems to be on Amazon, currently available to pre-order

A good thing to remember with the Book Depository is that their prices not only vary between their ".com" and ".co.uk" domains, but they also price-discriminate based on the IP address of the browser. This is how they claim to have "Free shipping". It isn't, they simply roll it into the price they show to you based on where they think you will *most likely* be delivering to.

Essentially this means that if your IP Address (or the IP Address of your proxy) is a UK one (at the time you add your first item into the basket), you will generally get a lower price than if you are somewhere else in the world. Sometimes the difference can be quite significant.

(It also means that if you live in the UK and work for a multinational that has proxies in the US, and you order from work, you might be getting inadvertently screwed!)

The other thing with BD is that you can pretty much always wangle a 10% discount voucher.

Seems to me, if they want us to take them seriously, they ought to treat us seriously.

It took a long time of disorganized browsing, but I did manage to find a way through to order directly from the WVUP, and my copy arrived neatly last Wednesday (22nd June).

As far as I can make out, if you go to this page:
http://wvupressonline.com/journals/tolkien_studies/volume_8
and click the appropriate price, you will be taken to the order form.

Eh, I'm not that keen!

Did you not just say Where does one order your publication from, if not from yourself? (--in that pompous tone!) I'm not in that much of hurry. Hopefully it will be available via the WUVP site some time soon.
