One bit of interesting news: I attended MythCon 39 at CCSU back on 15 and 16 August. In attendance was Ted Nasmith who very graciously signed all of the Tolkien calendars that he illustrated - including a copy of the 2009 that he was selling at his dealers' table. In addition, four of the illustrators of the 1990 NOT Tolkien Calendar were in attendance (not suprisingly, perhaps, as this was an issue of the MythSoc), and they also signed that one for me. The meeting was a lot of fun and very interesting.

Hello to All -

It has been extraordinarily quiet on this thread over the summer (and all of the other forums I haunt, too.) Just a note to see if anyone's around. In spite of the fact that I haven't posted since May, it seems a very short time since I did. Picked up a few calendars over the summer, and the 2009 calendars have started coming out.

We are working to finalize the 2009 Heren Istarion calendar. We are using illustrations from two new illustrators and Jef Murray has generously done up the cover for it. You will soon see it and ordering information on the herenistarion.org website. All proceeds benefit HI. Because of the 2008 calendar, HI has now made all memberships free.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

Hi Parmastahir,

good to see you around here again. I can't wait to see the 2009 calendar when it is ready - I'll be ordering a copy of this one as well.

Out of curiosity, how short is your "must find list" getting?

The list is 34 calendars.

- 8 are the "common" Minotauro/Spain issues that I noted above.
- 4 are "common" Amber/Poland issues.
- 3 are truly common ones that I am trying to find mint (shrinkwrapped) copies of.
- Most are rare ones: the 1969 Kirk, first issues of Beyond Bree, the Pillinger Shire Calendar (of which there are variants), the two American TS issues, several of the Middle-earth Fellowship.

Was just able this week to discover and collect one that was not even on my want list. I will add it to my website shortly. With that calendar and the 2008 S.T.I. that I must add, I have been able to catalog 279 calendars. By difference, that must mean that I have been able to collect 245 of them.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

How's your family? Work? Getting enough sleep?!?
