Damn it! Best Tolkien bibliography resource online.

Neil? -could we, in the future, get at least your articles posted up on TCG?

You drive a hard bargain – you can have it for £10 all-in – one consolation (for you) is that you do not have to hear the cries of my children, for bread...

Neil has only taken down the pages served by a Database on his site, though the main page www,tolkienbooks,net still contains infected code so do not visit that page.

Some of the articles were not served by the database so are still available. Be very careful when clicking on the links in left menu and the menu at the bottom of the screen as some of the links point to pages containing the malware, but the links in the main body of these pages are all ok.

The Early Publishing History of the Lord of the Rings Updated Dec07 - A series of articles that will, when completed, trace the publishing history of The Lord of the Rings, from Tolkien's attempts to secure the publication of both LotR and The Silmarillion in the early 1950s through to the publication of the Second Edition in the mid-1960s.

Tolkien's Languages and Alphabets Updated Dec07 - A chronological listing of articles that reproduce previously unpublished notes and essays concerning Tolkien’s invented languages and alphabets.

Notes on The History of Middle-earth Updated Jan08 - A series of articles covering various aspects of the HoMe series.

Tolkien Calendars Updated Dec08 - An illustrated guide to “official” British calendars from 1974 to the present.

Nasty Tricksy Hobbits Updated Oct05 - Not all signatures are what they seem to be.

Christopher Tolkien: A Chronological Bibliography Updated Dec07 - An extensive listing of the published works of J.R.R. Tolkien’s youngest son.

The Princess Hobbits Updated Jul07 - Details of the only abridged version of The Hobbit - a serialisation in Princess magazine.

Tolkien: The Esperantist? Updated Jul05 - Esperanto is a “man-made” language, so was naturally of interest to the Professor.

Songs for the Philologists Updated Jul07 - Details of Tolkien’s contributions to this very rare booklet.

Unpublished Tolkien Manuscript Found? Updated Jul07 - An article from The Sunday Times about Tolkien’s translation of Beowulf followed by a related article by Michael Drout.

I think I've got a Hobbit Updated Jul07 - A Collector’s Tale.

TolkienBooks.net has been attacked by hackers.

A great deal of damage has been done and will take time to repair. All of the compromised pages have now been deleted.

The front end of the site and most of An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography are out of action for the time being, but will hopefully be back online later in the year when Wheelbarrows at Dawn is finished and "real" world commitments are less.

The Articles Section is for the most part unaffected, although some of the links to the Bibliography are broken and the articles on print numbers for early Hobbits are down.

The TolkienBooks.net Bookstore is also still operational, although the homepage has lost its formatting.

This is the third time the site has been attacked, despite added security. I think it is down to the Wordpress-powered front end, so I may look for another way to do things.
