David,

Welcome to the forum.

I agree that you must be happy with him showing your book on national TV and your publisher is correct, send him copies of all your books.

Anyway, Andrew, thank you for posting Colbert clip on your website.

Worth pointing out, just for the sake of clarity, that it isn't Andrew's Website, though he is a moderator.

Just a fact based detail Stu. Nothing important.

Woah. I can think of nothing less Tolkienian (or Colbertine) than proudly declaring excitement over the prospect of gaining white supremacist readership. I suppose if money is the only object...

And then he can re-issue the dictionary with yet another title and get the Q-Anon money twice-over. Rinse and repeat! I've always believed David Day is a genius, making the same tired material pay for itself again and again and again...

Never let a tragedy go to waste...

Of course, like Stephen, the Q-Anon’s would have to buy a copy of the Dictionary and read it first. So, excellent! Sounds like I’ll have whole new pool of readers.

Q does relish in gleeful disinformation, I think you may be onto something.

[Admin hat on] As we are drifting away from Tolkien and into conspiracy-level politics, I'm going to put my moderator foot down and ask that we steer this thread back to more bookish collectingish Tolkienish thoughts, if any.

Woah! back to you Philomythos & Stu! & Caudimordax!
Can we lighten up a bit here?

I had thought I was having a rather good-humoured exchange with Trotter/Andrew (who graciously welcomed me to the forum) after I politely explained my “corrections” and my take on Steven Colbert’s satiric self-mocking monologue wherein he absurdly suggested Q-Anon supporters might find the same level of craziness by joining him in his Tolkien-obsessed nerd culture.

It was in this same self-mocking spirit that I suggested I might be able get Q-Anon crazies to buy copies of my Dictionary. To my total astonishment, this seems to have been taken this as a serious proposition!

All I can say is, if you believe I was seriously trying to convince Q-Anon fanatics to buy copies of my Dictionary, you must also believe Stephen Colbert was seriously trying to convince Q-Anon fanatics to join the Tolkien Society.

I am sorry if you interpreted my poor attempt at a humorous rejoinder meant I wished to consort with fascists. It was certainly not my intention.

I don't think anyone seriously thought you wanted to consort with fascists, FWIW.
