I read in the "Nottingham Evening Post" that "Tolkein's Gedling 1914" will be published by Brewin March, at £9.99. Here's a link to the article:

I don't see it on the publisher's website yet, though:

- but I have contacted them to ask for more details.

Could be some interesting information about Jane Neave in the book.

I hope that the author doesn't make too many unfounded conclusions though.

I might have to check it out when it gets published

Thanks Wellinghall

I shall certainly be checking the book out, Dior - I know the area, having family there, as well as having the Tolkien interest. I will report back!

Hello Dior and Wellinghall

The publication of the book has been delayed a bit, but it should be out at the beginning of May at the latest. The ISBN will be 978/85858 423 2 and I know that the Nottingham bookshops have ordered a fair few copies.

I'm afraid the Nottingham Evening Post went a bit mad on the Jane Neave as Gandalf idea, but that's journos for you. There are a few comments to make on this idea, but I keep it fairly conservative. On the whole, the book is based on detailed research, and has been edited by Wayne Hammond and Christina Scull, who have tried to keep me on the straight and narrow as well as using my research in the corrigenda and addenda to their Companion and Guide.

There's certainly more on Jane Neave (and Edwin)here than has been published before, including some photographs, and for local interest, much on Phoenix Farm.

Hi Andrew,

thanks for the information! And my apologies for the delay in getting your post up on the boards (non-member posts have to be hand approved due to the quantity of spam). I look forward to reading the book.

Ah, that explains why my copy hasn't turned up yet! I had just emailed the publisher to ask where it was.

Thanks for the information - I can't wait to read it.
