I knew that setting out... I will never be done! But that won't stop me from trying.

To whet your appetite a little bit, I found this gem this evening - a one hour audio interview with Tom Shippey from 2001:

Myth Makers Radio Interview

Send me more links to online content, or anything else! I have to start somewhere.

... for permission to reproduce images of their very nifty looking bookplates. They have been added to TCG with their own page.

The Philippine Tolkien Society

I love the artwork, and the bookplates are still available for order through their official website (which is mostly in English).

It is almost inconcievable, but apparently not imposible, that he could mispell Tilkeon (hee hee!)

It is assuredly Sauron. The Palantir (from Minas Ithil) aside, he has only four fingers on his left hand. But how evil could he be if he has cat's whiskers! Nice kitty!

I will leave the deciphering of the text above his head to my betters.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Just noticed that Jeremy has a copy of the original publication at Rown's Books - at a very reasonable price as well - the other copies for sale at the moment are over $1,000.

I will have a think about how to offer alphabetical and chronological options. You have a good point there.

One of the pieces of information I have entered for each item in the database is the section of Wayne Hammond's bibliography it fits into, i.e. A, B, C , D, E, F.
My original idea was to include a drop down menu on the gallery page that would allow you to filter what was displayed. I played around with it for days but couldn't get it to work properly. I didn't have many entries in the database at the time, so I might revisit the idea and have another crack at it.

Thanks for the offer of assistance - I will bear it in mind - working with php and phpmyadmin has been quite a step up from good old html, so I'm a bit out of my comfort zone.

PS. The package of goodies arrived - great stuff, thanks!
