Gosh, it's funny but I haven't seen this announced elsewhere. Why am I always the last to know about new Tolkien works?

Is there more to this than meets the eye, do you suppose?

So Saruman [In reply to] Can't Post

did take over Middle-earth and created an army worthy of Meccano?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

it's a glitch of some kind at B&N online [In reply to] Can't Post

Obviously, JRR Tolkien did not write The Transformers Calendar; it's just a glitch that showed up during one of my recent searches for "Tolkien" and "books" at Barnes and Noble dot com. Someone somehwere at B&N made a mistake.

I just found it amusing and thought there were others here who would also find it so.

Cool

Libera [In reply to] Can't Post

When I was looking for samples of the Dies Irae, I found this page on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/...226205658&sr=1-4

You'll notice all the tracks were
Composed by Robert Prizeman
with Liberace
I'm pretty sure this is a mistake and they mean to credit the group on the album: Libera. I even contacted them asking if this was accurate but they've made no change.

I also had someone asking on another site which EE to buy since he was finding different running lengths for different entries. I did my best to assure him there was only one EE and he didn't have to worry about publication dates or the set (EE or LE).

When I worked with a publishing house, we had someone who dealt with marketers like this and Amazon had a bad rep for making lots of mistakes and when they would finally correct it, they'd make another one.
