I just finished reading A Tolkienian Mathomium by Mark T. Hooker (with illustrations by James Dunning) into the Guide database. I will have a review of the book written up soon, but it is a good read and a good reference, so go buy a copy if you haven't already.

The other issues do show up again every now and then on the ELF website, when they do another printing. Christopher et al probably won't reprint an older one until they have cleared out the bulk of the #17 issues (a must-have, everyone get their hands on it. Stuffed full of primary Tolkien material publicly available for the first time.)

There is a copy of #8 on ABEbooks and a few other sites, for $12 right now. Other issues do show up occasionally there or on eBay (a bunch just ended, I am guessing it was those that caught your attention.)

I don't think I currently have additional copies of any issues, but I will check. Since there is no "wholesale discount", I tend not to try to keep spares on hand, as the more recent issues are (occasionally) available as back issues, and I'd have to ask more than list price.

Thanks for the update! Very useful to know more details. I didn't notice on my first reading that the first two volumes are slipcased (made by a bookbinder), so clearly the ROTK volumes were added to this collection at a later time.

I have put together a widget that combines, labels, and sorts by date posts to multiple (currently three) other RSS feeds into a sort of meta-feed for interesting Tolkien related posts.

Do you like it? Not like it?

If you like it, have other feeds I can combine into it?

Please tell me what you think!
