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.

And the winner for the February drawing is.... Dior! I used random.org to generate a random number against my list of contributors, so you were chosen by atmospheric noise.

Let me know what you would like on or offline, and I'll get it off to you. I'll have a list of mathom's for March as soon as you pick something, and the list of contributors is already gathering.

I can't argue with more advertising (yes please!), but numbers are growing reasonably for such a young site. I think the amount of discussion / traffic will go up exponentially when I actually get some book content on here instead of all this other stuff. (There are just so many good book sites, I always find myself poking at fanzines or other items that are hard to find online... I really will start the US book upload soon, I have a ton of scans and info to do.)

Hi Slyss,

What exactly is your problem? How is it not working for you? How much debugging have you done? There are just so many things that could be the problem, I am at a bit of a loss as to how to help. I'm monitoring gijoe's site, if you could post what exactly is going on over there I will try to help (a more appropriate forum than over here.)

Jeremy

There is a "Tolkien Online" link in the Main Menu in the upper left corner (between "Classifieds" and "The Book of Mazarbul").

I am toying with what to include on that page, I want it to be reasonably useful and informative, so comments or suggestions are welcome. The google feed might need some adjustments as it will likely overwhelm the other feeds in sheer number of headlines.
