  1. The two new special editions of The Lord of the Rings are now available to American readers! I suggest getting them directly from Harper Collins, or from the Book Depository. Those of us who per-ordered one (or both) of the editions probably got them through I got the Deluxe Slipcase Edition, and it is beautifully done.
