Which translated language editions currently exist for this book? I've so far only seen a German one (Klett-Cotta, ISBN 3608987002). Are there any others?

The Brazilian one, I think: https://harpercollins.com.br/products/ ... en?variant=43623107756198

Some pictures of the brazilian edition. I really liked the heraldic devices on the endpapers

It seems they are doing a good job with Tolkien's books. I like the hardcover. Thanks for sharing!

People over on REDDIT are reporting that their orders for the signed edition are being cancelled.

We're very sorry, due to time constraints we were unable to obtain enough signed stock of The Fall Of Numenor & Other Tales From The Second Age Of Middle-Earth (Signed Hardcover) - SIGNED to fulfil our pre-orders.

Our apologies for the delay to informing you of this, we have tried to arrange for more copies to be signed, but it has now been confirmed we may only be able to get one of the signees to return to sign more stock in the New Year.

Regrettably this title on your order has been cancelled. Please be assured you’ve not been charged for this item.

We're very sorry for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience in this matter.

Yes, I just got the cancellation message for my signed trade edition as well. As they had charged me shipping for it already, I am still trying to get that resolved with them (and likely won't be ordering through Forbidden Planet again in the future...)

Have seen similar things on FB and Mastodon as well. Seems like Forbidden Planet got greedy and took more orders than they could fill. Or they didn't understand how many signed books they would actually be able to get their hands on.

Greed or Incompetence...

Yes, I got the same message, and like you Urulókë, I'm trying to sort the shipping mess, as I ordered 2 deluxe signed and 2 trades. They charged me 2x the shipping costs for my deluxes (but gathered in one parcel). They told me they won't charged any shipping for my trades (as I already paid twice).
But meh, as the trades aren't available anymore, they should refund me half of the shipping. Sent them an email but they're not willing to understand/process the refund.
Useless to say, I won't *ever* order from them again.

Same. I had ordered a deluxe and trade. They shipped the deluxe to my folks in the UK a couple of weeks ago. Trade cancelled. I suspect they accidentally sold the pre-order stock in the shop.

I guess I'll be getting an unsigned trade from Kennys or somesuch.

Credit card chargeback Give your emails to your bank. They will probably chargeback the entire transaction -- which will send FP a message...

Does this make Alan Lee's signature just a tiny bit more rare & in demand? ;)
