I am wondering if anyone can shed any light on the following.

In October Harper Collins are issuing a normal and deluxe version of "Tales from the Perilous Realm".

I believe that Harper Collins are also, in November, issuing a signed copy of the Deluxe Tales from the Perilous Realm from their web site.

Deluxe Signed Edition

Can anyone confirm this?

Also, why don't Harper Collins try to always inform people like us about new editions, surely it can not be that hard for them to email people or use a web site like tolkien.co.uk? How is this handled by Houghton Mifflin?

I appreciate that Beren does get some information from them, but I have registered with them for email updates about Tolkien but get no useful updates.

Aw man,

you guys start talking about eBay signatures, so someone goes and whips out a forgery to sell a piece of junk:

The list is 34 calendars.

- 8 are the "common" Minotauro/Spain issues that I noted above.
- 4 are "common" Amber/Poland issues.
- 3 are truly common ones that I am trying to find mint (shrinkwrapped) copies of.
- Most are rare ones: the 1969 Kirk, first issues of Beyond Bree, the Pillinger Shire Calendar (of which there are variants), the two American TS issues, several of the Middle-earth Fellowship.

Was just able this week to discover and collect one that was not even on my want list. I will add it to my website shortly. With that calendar and the 2008 S.T.I. that I must add, I have been able to catalog 279 calendars. By difference, that must mean that I have been able to collect 245 of them.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

How's your family? Work? Getting enough sleep?!?

Hi everyone,

as has been mentioned in a few other threads, it got quiet in here (and elsewhere) over the summer. It does seem to be picking up again (though of course I am assuming a lot of regulars are at Oxonmoot right now, so it may still be a quiet weekend.)

I wanted to post my "find of the summer" as far as Tolkien collecting goes, and hopefully get some stories out of you as well. Did you strike gold in a used bookstore somewhere? Finally get a hit from an AbeBooks want? See something on eBay for the first time in years?

Here's mine...

Through some creative google searching and a random stab in the dark, I managed to track down a Tolkien fan active in the late 1960's who wanted to get rid of a stack of fanzines. Just recently the box arrived, and I have had a great time digging through it - a complete run of "Middle Earthworm", some Amon Hens to fill some holes in my collection, the Tolkien Alliance version of "News From Bree", and a bunch of others - look for Guide updates over the next few months as I read and review most of the issues.

Hi Parmastahir,

good to see you around here again. I can't wait to see the 2009 calendar when it is ready - I'll be ordering a copy of this one as well.

Out of curiosity, how short is your "must find list" getting?
