While awaiting Hammond's new edition of the Descriptive Bibliography, and Deagol's update of TolkienBooks.net, some may perhaps be interested in checking the Index: Writings by J.R.R. Tolkien (mostly referencing already available bibliographies) on the wiki Tolkien Gateway.

It's naturally not very reliable (I'm not intending to start a discussion on the reliability of wikis) or complete, but for what it's worth it may be useful to get an overview of especially newly published material (post-2007).

Indeed, +1 to Khamul! I remember when TolkienBooks was down for a year or so ... it made life very difficult for collectors.

If these prices continue to be in fashion I could likely add the 1st/1st Silmarillion I bought for £20 to our thread on "lucky finds".



Edit: Well, always read the small prints - a signed copy is of course a whole different league!

Trotter, thanks for the link to the article! I wasn't able to put such a high bid, sadly...

Did the Tolkein fellow write a similar letter? He must have stalked the Professor closely...

I had them at hand (had already listed the contents for another website):

L. Sprague de Camp: "Introduction: Heroic Fantasy" (pp. 7-8)
Poul Anderson: "The Valor of Cappen Varra" (pp. 11-24)
Lord Dunsany: "Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jeweller" (pp. 27-30)
Robert E. Howard: "Shadows in the Moonlight" (pp. 33-63)
Henry Kuttner: "The Citadel of Darkness" (pp. 67-93)
Fritz Leiber: "When the Sea King's Away" (pp. 97-119)
H.P. Lovecraft: "The Doom that came to Sarnath" (pp. 123-129)
C.L. Moore: "Hellsgarde" (pp. 133-165)
Clark Ashton Smith: "The Testament of Athammaus" (pp. 169-186)

Each contributing author gets a short introduction (hence the missing pages above).


Edit: added some links to free Guthenberg editions of some of the stories. Some of the others were also available online, but I'm unsure about the copyright status...
