I guess the rule of thumb is don't write a book with previously unpublished material until you have secured permission to use the material.

That is unfortunate; I was looking forward to this book. It does not surprise me, though. This is not the first time, nor will it be the last. Something similar happened to the Jonah book about Tolkien's translation. I completely respect the Tolkien Estate but it seems like they are at times a bit overprotective of Tolkien's writings.

Sorry for those who labored so long on this book project.

Why would Tolkien sign a book written by Lewis, especially given the fact that he did not think highly of this book?

Like most collectors, I mainly collect 1st, 1sts.

However, for research purposes, I also collect unpublished and uncollected images of Tolkien's letters. I have also acquired copies of most of Tolkien's published interviews, but there are still a few I still need. His interviews are fascinating.
