Just dug out my copy of Martsch's Tolkienalia, according to which

"I saw the first mention of it in 1975 ballantine paperback editions, for $1.49" (Gary Hunnewell).

I have a copy of the 'Come to Middle earth' poster; according to Martsch, this was produced in the late '60s.

I've also just noticed a mention (p.23) of four posters produced by The Middle Earthworm, England, 1970/71. Ooh! I have those; plus another, entitled 'Treebeard'. Never knew the firm was called that.

Don't know anything about it...but that is very, very beautiful.

I bought it recently, and have read about a quarter of it. So far, it is interesting, but not startling.

I'll post a fuller review when I have finished it.

Has anyone read this book published last October (in paperback, the HC came out in 2006)?

From the publisher: "Leonard S. Marcus's incisive interviews range over questions of literary craft and moral vision as he asks thirteen noted fantasy authors about their pivotal life experiences, their literary influences and work routines, and their beliefs about the place of fantasy in literature and in our lives"

From School Library Journal review: "In the process, he uncovered fascinating revelations about where writers' ideas come from and the themes that the authors deal with. One common thread is homage to J. R. R. Tolkien: Susan Cooper took a class from him; Madeleine L'Engle devoured the three LOTR volumes in as many days; and Ursula LeGuin returns to the novels again and again. However, Philip Pullman can find little in the works now that resonates for him."
