Well, I did manage to adjust our family weekend schedule and make a way for me to attend Mythcon for both Saturday and Sunday. Let me know if you will be there!

Still no leads on that poster yet, but I am still talking with collectors. Here's another one a fellow collector is looking for...

The Tree-Woven Lands of Middle-earth

which by the way brought up an excellent idea for another section of the guide - "have you seen this poster?" I've started the list with these two descriptions. Please submit more requests for old posters you remember, and images or leads if you have any additional information!

I've been invited to set up a table in the dealer's room at Mythcon 38, in Berkeley, CA next weekend (August 3-6, 2007).

Is it worth me going for one day only? I don't think I can get the time away from the family for the whole weekend, though I would dearly like to attend and not just as a dealer.

I was thinking of going for Sunday only, if the Mythcon board is willing - that's also the Auction day, which sounds like fun.

If I do go, is anyone else going to be there? Is there anything in particular you want me to bring (to look at just for fun, even)?

My reading copies are the Quality Paperback Book Club editions with Tolkien's cover art. They are nice trade paperbacks that have the same pagination as the HMs and Unwins, and they hold up pretty well even after many readings. My old '78 HM boxed set is my other reading copy, the one that I used from age 13 until about 35 when I retired them and switched to paperbacks.
