Thanks for that Beren.

But you should not have to tell people this, Harper Collins should do it themselves.

Why do they not do it?

This has also been raised on the forums at tolkien.co.uk Forums

It appears that a Paperback copy of the Illustrated Silmarillion (Ted Naysmith illustrator) may also come out in October, but again Harper Collins would prefer us to stumble upon it, not tell us directly.

sorry... heard about that edition for some time, but was fighting a flu and did not find much time to share what I learned...

It will be a standard deluxe edition, so matching the current deluxe edition, it will be signed by Alan Lee on the title page (no bookplates) and will be just 500 copies. They will be the first print run of the first printing and will be available before the 1st printing hits the market (so the first 500 copies made). They will be for sale thru tolkien.co.uk, but don't know if you can buy more then one copy or that they will be available outside the UK.

Have no more news on that right now. More will follow shortly!

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.
