An interesting post from Brian Sibley on a Christmas Carol (which was first published on this day in 1843)

Humbug! by Brian Sibley

There is a copy on eBay at the moment for £9.99 which has not sold, so I think probably only about £2-£5. The tracks are available on CD and this seems to be a more popular choice nowadays.

Interestingly, some of these are my books and I am not very happy with the merp_shop showing the pictures.

The pictures of the Hatchard's Hobbit are from my copy, for a long time he included the number of my book in the listing (as if he was selling my copy)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HOBBIT-DELU ... ction&hash=item2eb9df0ae2

I eventually put a complaint into eBay, which like every other complaint I have ever made to them was ignored, but he did stop using the picture of the limitation page from my book, the rest of the pictures are from my copy.

The John Howe Box set also showed my pictures (I got it for £99 because of the tape on the box). I started a thread on this copy to do with the size of the box set.

If these were the best pictures he had of the box set then I wonder what the set really looked like.

Now you can see them as he has changed the pictures (the spines look very different)
