Is this basically the same material Alex Lewis used to compile "A Tale of Gondolin?" Or does the new version also draw upon text from the HOME?

A very attractive set.

Guild publishing also produced a set with the same dust jackets. I don't know if they included a slipcase.

Read on the web that Amazon is in talks with the Tolkien Estate and Trust regarding a serialzed film version of The Lord of the Rings. Doesn't someone else (Saul Zaentz?) own the film rights?

I can't help thinking there is a point where re-packaging the same material, over and over again, just gets overwhelming. I have first and second editions of the UK and NA printings, along with a number of other HC and PB editions, most of which are pre-80's. There have been so many different printings since then it is almost impossible to keep track!

Yes, thank you. It's always a pleasure to listen to Dr. Shippey. I saw him present at a local university soon after the first Jackson movie was released and he was very informative and entertaining.

An interesting piece on the newly announced Beren and Luthien.

Didn't watch the video, but after searching "Tolkien" on etsy.com all I can say is there is enough work there to keep the estates lawyers working into the next millennia.
