The copies of Medium Aevum are listed as a result of the recent copies on eBay - I won those to upgrade my collection, so the ones for sale are surplus to requirements. As you say, very scarce items.

The dynamic eBay lists sound like a good idea. Could we also nominate favourite eBay sellers as well?

P.S. I had to google the nerf herders reference!

Yep, I just checked my records and I bought one of those super-cheap Silmarillion Deluxe books from him back in 2004. I remember thinking that they must have been selling really poorly and so HarperCollins must have been putting them out as remainders.

I also don't think that HC will be going after the buyers - not only does it sound like they are getting restitution from the thief, but the cost of tracking down and reclaiming the stolen property is likely to be higher than the value of the merchandise to them, so they would lose more money in the process.

On this note - I was thinking of putting together a page in the Guide somewhere that has a dynamic list of all Tolkien related eBay auctions currently running that are listed by TCG members (basically any of you that want me to include your listings.) Would that be useful or interesting?

As promised, here is a list of your items. Nice to see the Medium Aevum issues (second set on eBay in a month, quite scarce other than that!) Funny how the scarce stuff seems to come and go in clumps.

Also, got a chuckle at seeing a book called "scruffy". Some random thought about a nerf herder popped into my head...

I have finally got some books listed on eBay.

More coming in the next few days.
