- Someone on this list very kindly pointed me in the direction of a source for
Anglican hymns this summer, but I have misplaced that message. Along with
giving the information to find the cyberhymnal collection, the kind poster
also confirmed that CS Lewis knew a specific hymnal and hymns. Can anyone
help me find that information again?

publish it. Very curious, I say, given that it contains previously
unpublished writing by Tolkien. Amazon.com lists the British
(HarperCollins) edition, but with a 1-2 month wait, but the book is
immediately available, as John says, from amazon.co.uk.
Houghton Mifflin have, however, just reprinted the one-volume 50th
anniversary edition of _The Lord of the Rings_ in both trade hardcover and
paperback, with additional corrections and a new, much larger index (by
Christina and me), and later this year will publish our book of
annotations, _The Lord of the Rings: A Reader's Companion_ (which also
includes a new edition of Tolkien's "Nomenclature of _The Lord of the
Rings_"). This was originally to come out this month, but its unexpected
length (976 pp.) caused printing and binding delays in the U.K., which led
to the HarperCollins edition being postponed to 17 October and the Houghton
Mifflin edition to 27 December. Houghton Mifflin will be publishing this
only as a separate volume; in the U.K. it will be available both separately
and in boxed sets with _The Lord of the Rings_, 3 vols., hardcover and
N.B. This is still not _The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide_, the
two-volume reference book Christina and I have been working on for years.
We expect that to be finished and published in 2006, and have returned to
it after a short break to copy-edit the papers of the 2004 Marquette
University Tolkien conference, which Marquette University Press expect to
publish in December.

Verlyn was just the right scholar to do this. I rejoice that it seems
to be as good an edition as we hoped it could be. Santa, id I'm good...
