I have not posted in a while. But I have been busy!

After talking about it for the longest time (almost a year and a half), I pushed my son to help me create my new website:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

He designed it when he was in college (fall of 2007.) I had registered the domain name before then. I found someone to host for it me, and got my son to map it to that server. He set up some templates, and I have been spending most of my free time over the last month transferring all of the content from the Angelfire site. I think it is now all there . . . and I have added some content. I am now creating pages with the monthly illustrations. I am using the photos that I shot for the many Calendar of the Month features. I have programmed four so far:

1969 Ken Rudolph

1986 Hobbit Presse

2002 Pocket

2003 Ronnie Sellers (postcard)

I have 23 more that I will create soon. You can access the monthly illustrations by clicking on the year/publisher (which is a green, underlined link for those entries.) Once I get all of those programmed, I will start creating new Calendar of the Month features. Those now appear on the homepage of the website. In this manner, I will someday get most (if not all) of the calendar illustrations documented.

The only thing I need him to add is a visit counter. Then I’ll abandon the Angelfire site. Actually, I think I’ll program a simple link that will take visitors to the new site.

Comments welcome!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

(p.s. - Fangorn may recognize this as the text of an email that I just sent to him. I had to let him know of this before "the world" as it was he who supported my initial interest in the calendars and continues to do so. I can not repay him for his time and advice and friendship . . . and calls every now and then on the weekend!)

I actually received an email saying something altogether more confusing!

I think Amazon just made a mess of the original estimated dispatch/delivery dates. (For the orders I placed) the deluxe dispatch states May 5th (delivery 11th-12th with Super Saver); which would be correct I guess.

The standard hardback originally stated dispatch as 29th April (delivery 6th-7th with Super Saver); which would presumably mean they would have been sending it before the official publication date (HC state the 5th of May).

However they have now corrected the standard Hb estimates to an 'arrival' date of 5th-12th! So I guess this would still involve them shipping before the 5th, if I were to receive on the 5th...

We'll just assume May some time!

I had an email from Amazon today saying that I can expect to get this book by the 1st May. Seeing as the book is not released until the 5th May, this is very unusual.

Possibly the book will come out by the 1st May.

(Cheers Trotter!) Also shows (I guess) some of the Tolkien Archive at HarperCollins HQ. Very interesting...

Interview about the new book, from TheOneRing.net

Contains information on the book, shows Brian Cox reading some of the book for the Audio Book and also explains how the cover was shown.
