[Rowns] Some of the price on Ebay are just a bit strange really. $100+ for a few paperbacks! What are they missing!

You know to pull out of the bidding when the price gets anywhere near Abebooks prices. If reputible dealers (with ABEs 13.5% fees) can sell for whatever; not much point in paying that on Ebay (unless its a reputible dealer on Ebay also!).

I've been watching HoME prices for a long while now, and the prices people pay for these books are highly variable. They've all been gradually going down in price (I think). But the other day, a fairly normal copy of Sauron Defeated went for £100; which is pretty high. And, did anyone see the copy of Peoples of Middle-earth (usually goes for ~£300-500), that ADCbooks sold last year for £830! . Whats that all about!?

The crazy world of Ebay...

? pages, Walking Tree Publishers 2007, Cormarë No. 11, ISBN: 978-3-905703-05-4.

Not sure why you'd want to put this up on our own website. How many pages was that book that you published? Ehhh.. don't know; don't seem to have one at hand...

Cheers for info.!

[Just seeking some info. here]

Anyone got Roots & Branches by Tom Shippey?

How many articles/pieces are actually in it? Amazon.co.uk cites it as 432 pgs; which seems quite large. And, I take it binding etc is as with other Walking Tree Publishers releases? Lastly does anyone think it likely that Amazon's current stock is anything other than 1st impressions? (what with Walking Tree Publishers being relatively small.)

Just thought I'd drop a note on Andy Compton's ADCbooks April 2008 A J R R Tolkien and Fantasy inspired Exibition titled Castles in the Mist. Just got flier today with TS/Mallorn.

Ted Nasmith & Ruth Lacon artwork (as usual with ADC events)
Special invited guests John Howe, Alan Lee and Roger Garland!!!! (All under one roof; all at one event!)

When you think of Tolkien art; not many other people spring to mind...
