Hi Garm -

I am very pleased to know that you find my site useful. I created it to be so. As you noted, it's a very specialized collection. So the number of collectors is small (and "we" all know who "we" are for the most part. But there seemed to be an influx of new people recently if I interpret a flurry of activity/purchases of these calendars on eBay correctly.)

As to the 1974 A&U mailer: You can view a fully intact one on my website. Just go to its listing in the 1969-1974 section and click on the green "mailer" link. It has tear strip to open it. Some people did. I always separated the glued flap on the back and kept the mailer essentially intact.

I'll have to add your dainties to a list that I keep so I know (or can remember!) where copies of various calendars are. Hope I did not offend you when I mentioned selling your calendar. My intent was not to get it from you. It was an offer to put you in contact with other calendar collectors and avoid the costs associated with eBay and PayPal. Some people get very incensed about mere suggestion of parting with any of their Tolkienalia.

Congratulations on the 1998 S.T.I. That's another goodie. I keep mine in Tyvek envelopes.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm

Hi Garm -

Did your copy come with/in a mailer or sleeve? My copy is "just" the calendar. I have not been able to confirm if this issue originally was in a box (as was the 1974 A&U variant.) Any advice that you (or others here) have would be appreciated!

As to rarity, that's my subjective take on it. As noted in "Rarity" rankings, there are probably still a fair number of these floating around somewhere. They just don't show up on eBay (and I'm not actively pursuing a copy as I have one.) But should you ever wish to part with your copy, please let me know. I could put you in contact with several fellow calendar enthusiasts!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm

Posted the Calendar of the Month for June at:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

Chose to post this issue to honor the June birthday of Fangorn, a wonderful gentleman and giant in the Tolkien world.

Hope this finds all well and enjoying summer (even if it technically does not arrive for another two weeks!)

Updated the Calendar of the Month feature at:

www.tolkiencalendars.com

Here's your chance to walk down memory lane with a calendar that is today somewhat rarely seen. Happy May to all!

Geez, I thought it was "Speed Kills" ?!?

Am glad that you know how to do that "stuff." I didn't even program my current website. My son did during a college web class. (OK, I HAVE done all of the programming and updates based upon the templates that he provided.) So I'm impressed.

But how busy are we when we think that waiting only 8 seconds is SOOOOOOO much better than waiting 15? I think it speaks to the impatience resulting from wanting to do so much and only having so much time. I have to admit clicking my mouse a million times (seemed like that many, anyhow!) and yelling, "C'mon you stupid computer. Load the ^!$%%* page!"

Frankly, I don't care how long it takes. These pages are worth the wait (even if it were still an entire 15 seconds!) I don't post on everything. But I do read the many threads with interest (even if I don't collect the books.) Hearing what the knowledgeable have to say about the many subjects is worth the reads.

OK. I'll stop waxing philosophical and thank you for this site no matter how long it takes to get onto it!
