This is truly a shame. Someone has bid on this auction, which seems to me to certainly be a fraud.

The signature does not even look like it is in the same ink as the authentic bookplates.

It's June and that means a new Calendar of the Month feature. Hope you like it.

Happy Summer everyone!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Hey all,

I've had at least one person ask about the banner "ads" shown at the top of pages on TCG.

I put a couple of banners up there for sites that I liked that seemed relevant. It seems to be working just fine, and getting enough interest that I want to open it up to other sites.

It's all free. If you have a site that you think is relevant enough to TCG readers and have some banner artwork ready (468 x 60 preferred, static images only), just drop me a note and if I approve it, I will add it into the rotation. Feel free to recommend other sites even if you are not the site owner, and if it looks interesting I will contact the site admin.

The TCG website giveaways were on furlough for a few months there for a couple of reasons - one, the Children of Hurin release party sponsorship where TCG gave away a couple of signed Hildebrant prints, and two, I wasn't around for a while there.

Hopefully I will be around much more often now, to keep the site up to date and moving forward in the guide database entries.

One thing I never mentioned before, I realized - Dior, who won the first giveaway, graciously donated his winnings into the next giveaway. So, the possible prizes for the month of June include all of the prior ones. I will add a few more I think as I have time this upcoming week.

A. 2005 16 month "The Tolkien Art of the Brothers Hildebrant" calendar, still brand new and sealed in shrinkwrap.

B. Orcrist #3 (Tolkien Journal Vol. 4. no. 1, whole number 11) - Cover art "The Hornberg in Helm's Deep" by Tim Kirk.

C. Four vintage 1960's buttons - "Frodo Lives" (green and red), "Tolkien is Hobbit Forming", "Come to Middle-earth". (Yes, they are a bit stained - they're old!)

Everyone who posts to the TCG website (discussion forums, guide entries, classifieds, events, news, comments, links) will be entered in the drawing. One entry per person per month. Since some of the methods allow anonymous postings, I will only include those in the drawing if I can identify who made the post. Malicious posts (I have a couple of comment spammers I am fighting off right now) don't count.

Expect a security measure on some postings soon.

Good to be back!

Beren's site is a good place to list them. I could list them on rowns.com as well - plus there is a good community here that may just contact you from this discussion thread.
