Sorry for being away for so long... work trip.

I've definitely noticed that there are certain issues of AH and Mallorn that are quite scarce, and that certain people are very keen on getting them. You will see, for example, one particular issue of AH go over $100 and another from the same seller from the same era get no bids at $20 or so. But there is definitely a surge in interest in all of these old fanzines recently, I think they are the new hot collectible (like the History of Middle-earth was back around 2000-2002). They will stabilize again soon I think, when the current well-funded collectors get their sets together or run out of money/interest, or else when the high prices bring out a lot of copies from closets and the market meets the current demand.

I emailed Lisa Star about Tyalie Tyelellieva, she may have some back issues available still.

The Rayner speech is quite interesting considering what was discussed in terms of future (at that time) publications and it was good to read it again.

There is still one question that I have, and that's regarding Tyalie Tyelellieva? Has anyone got any information on this journal? I am particularly interested in Number 17 although I haven't managed to get any as yet.

I wrote to and received replies from Lynn Maudlin about her creation of the 1990 NOT Tolkien Calendar and from Tom Maringer about his creation of the Shire Post (fantasy stamps and coins and several calendars). I added links to their letters on my website trying to add content beyond the "cut and dried" information of each calendar entry.

Hope all is well with everyone. Only 11 days to Spring!

I am after the account of Rayner's speech at the AGM. According to the Mallorn index it is on pages 20-23 - not sure if this refers to his speech or the AGM report as a whole. Specifically I am interested in what he had to say about The Silmarillion, and Tolkien publishing in general.
