I live about 2 hours from Skiatook, Oklahoma and have been through that town.

I am trying to picture Tolkien there, but it is just not working!

It was wonderful to get to meet the man behind the Rowns! Jeremy had a great display with some choice items, and many commented on the interesting assortment of books (Tolkien and other fantasy literature--Mythopoeic Award winners, etc.) as well as fanzines he brought.

There were several other dealers there, so it was an excellent book-buying experience. I didn't even hit Moe's, the big Berkeley used/rare book emporium, this trip!

Thanks for coming, Jeremy. Next year the Mythopoeic Society conference (Mythcon 39) will be at Central Connecticut State University August 15-18, with Anthony Burdge, one of our posters here, as one of the main organizers. Eastern US members and dealers should definitely consider coming out.

My reading copies are the Quality Paperback Book Club editions with Tolkien's cover art. They are nice trade paperbacks that have the same pagination as the HMs and Unwins, and they hold up pretty well even after many readings. My old '78 HM boxed set is my other reading copy, the one that I used from age 13 until about 35 when I retired them and switched to paperbacks.

Hmm, a book club edition of Clockwork Orange (he hopes most eBayers don't know what bce means!) for £425.00; a 1st/1st "Canary" Row (or should it be Canary Warf?) starting at £19.99; a signed Pullman for £950.00 (that seems excessive, though Pullman seems to be going up in value with the movie coming out); and then a slew of junky Harry Potter kitsch.

That seller is all over the place!

Hmm, this ad looks like it was written by the same seller who had the COH with the Alan Lee and Ted Nasmith illustrations (all lower-case, "piccadilli," etc). It is very suspicous.
