I am still waiting to get my copies (living in the US, I am dependent on a friend in the UK who is travelling here to visit soon. Unfortunately the trip keeps getting postponed, now planned for February. Saves on shipping costs though!)

I would definitely contact Harper Collins about getting a replacement. The bookmarks shouldn't fray like that, straight out of the box. They will give you a higher number than the one you currently have, so if #34 has special meaning for you keep that in mind (but I think a nice bookmark has more lasting value than a particular number in this case.)

I definitely think that these editions are much enhanced by having original sketches and signatures from the illustrators - it is one of the few ways to make them unique and differentiated from other Easton Press copies (which are quite nicely made, but generally easily available.)

Hi Deagol,

thanks for the images. I matched up your information with what Gary Hunnewell provided me to put up some stub pages on the TCG page.

Doing some additional digging, I found a website from 2003 for the creators of this fanzine (which, unfortunately, does not have a working email address for me to contact for more info.)

http://users.tinyworld.co.uk/millifalcon/index.htm

It does mention that the title is pronounced "Eric!" and that both issues were produced in 1986 (not 1985 for issue #1). Do you know if the issue itself mentions when it was published? Have any other information available to confirm the 1985 date?

Anyone have current contact information for any of the editors? Even on the website there are no full names mentioned.

Was this fanzine associated with the Tolkien Society or a smial, or independent?

Thanks!

All i am interested in is if they were all indeed the skinny, thin, ribbons? mostly i just want to know if everyone else's has started to unravel.


I did buy mine off of e-bay, but i am almost positive the gentleman I purchased it from hadn't previously taken it out to read by the fire, and likewise I have handled it as little as possible, although i do gawk over it constantly!!

I got my copy of the Super Deluxe CoH about a week ago (#34, dunno, might have bought it from a frequent of this site) and I love it more than I thought possible to love a book. but there's one thing about it that, and this is pretty funny, I feel sorry for it about (instead of concerned for it's market value), it's bookmark. Mine is a frayed piece of string (silk, lest i be mistaken) that is pulled horribly at it's base. In general terms it seems way below the standards of the book (i mean each page fells like about 3 regular pages perfectly glued together(i simply love this book!!)) What does anyone else think about this bookmark issue? if indeed i am not the only one who got the goofy type?
thanks all!
