The Welsh thing looks very tempting - it would be great to catch up with Shippey and Verlyn Flieger again (and wonderful to meet artists I haven't yet met: Rodney Matthews, and Paul Gregory).

But it's not to be. I reckon the trip would cost us £800.00 just for the entrance fees and four nights' accomodation. Then there's food, and travel costs. Out of the question.

But hey - we always have a good time at Moreton, and I hope to see you both there, and anyone else who can make it.

Trotter, I'll probably be down for the Moreton event. I went in 2007 for the CoH launch, couldn't get down in 2008, but attended again in 2009 --it was pretty good. But, I have no firm plans as yet, as it is literally a 1000 miles round trip from Aberdeen, & the drive is in excess of 8 hours. That said, if you're there at the end, and your buying, then I may fix those plans! --no, seriously, I'll probably be down for Friday & Saturday (& Saturday evening).

I ain't going to Festival in the Shire. It sounds very promising, but the money is prohibitive, what with travelling down costs too.

On Saturday the 14th August 2010, I will be at the "Edge of the Wild Event" In Morton in Marsh, so am interested in who else from the forum may be attending as it would be great to meet up.

I also like to know if anyone is going to Mark Faith's Welsh event held on the same dates as it would be nice to get some feedback on both events from board members.

I apologise in advance for members outside the UK who probably can't make either event

Thanks for your thoughts Trotter. Much Appreciated.

I too thought the Printed Label made it more likely that it was issued by the Publisher but then when I saw the fit of the magazines into the slipcase, I was not so sure.

I did have a search on the web (including the Horn Book Magazine's own webiste) but could not find any information. I am sure I will eventually find a definitive answer.

Many Thanks Again.

Not sure about the name change garm, but I report this item every time I see it. The last story was that it was found at a car boot sale I think. eBay, whether true or not, say they'll only suspend accounts if there are multiple breaches. I guess if a fair amount of us report these every time they are listed, the complaints will build up.
