Since Houghton Mifflin is doing an edition of this book, there won't be any (legal) US retailers carrying the HarperCollins editions.

Sometimes Amazon[.]ca gets the UK editions in stock and costs are reasonable to ship from there to the USA, but I haven't investigated this closely for UT - the release date in Canada is quite a bit later, for example.

Ah, did not know HM's intent to follow suit. I'm sure it'll be of similar quality, so I'm okay with that.

Commonwealth countries get the UK editions primarily. I think in all the....18 years of my being a Tolkien fan, they (national book retailer) carried HMH instead of HC for some titles a total of 5 times.

By the way - as a ticket holder for the online event on Thursday, I just got an email from eventbrite (through Waterstones) with instructions to "check that you have access to the page by clicking on the button below". It took me a good five minutes of work to get eventbrite to let me in, so I would suggest others with tickets do the same now rather than waiting for Thursday.

When you bought a ticket, you used an email address when purchasing the ticket, which created an account for you automatically. I don't recall ever setting a password for that account, but of course it asked me for one today. I did the "reset password" steps which worked fine, but the second trick was that clicking on the "button below" in the email did not actually log me in even though it asked me for my email and password. I had to go to the main eventbrite website, log in, then click on the Waterstones "button" again, and then it confirmed that I now have access to the event.

Sheesh. Hope no-one else has these issues, but just in case I hope this helps.

I did this but I don't think it is necessary, the original email from Waterstones that you got when you signed up has the Zoom link in it, and you can click on that to join the meeting.

Replacement arrived today, perfect DJ and the odd cut paper is not present in the replacement.

Blackwell's appears to be showing the Deluxe edition as out of stock now.

The other usual suspects all seem to have stock, so I'd imagine they just temporarily shipped out the copies they have for internet sales.

Have ordered a trade edition from Books etc. today, as they look to be the cheapest in the UK at the moment. Will update on the packaging when I receive it, if it is bad then will not be using them again.
