Does anyone collect Tolkien Journals and Fanzines and if so have you noticed the increase in prices recently on Ebay? The UK Tolkien Society journals in particular seem to have reached ridiculous prices on Ebay.

I have only been on Ebay for a few years now and I used to pick these journals up for a few dollars each, now early editions of Amon Hen are going for over $100 US.

Has anyone seen prices rise like this before?

I'm hoping that they will eventually return to a more affordable price so I can complete my set.

Also, has anyone managed to obtain any copies of Tyalie Tyelellieva??
I have been trying to get any editions (I think there were 19) but they seem to be quite tough to get.

Yes I have seen the Amon Hen beign sold for high prices. I was always in the idea that it was still possible to order back-issues of Amon Hen. It is very tempting to start selling my own old Amon Hen!

Beren,

Yes it is very tempting to sell my copies of Amon Hen as well.I hae some doubles which I think i might put up on ebay. The Tolkien Society do sell some back issues at quite good prices. I have already bought these.

It looks like there are 2 or 3 people trying to build a complete set of AH at the moment. I think you can get copies going back as far as AH50 from the TS, but for copies before that you need a large slice of luck or a large bank balance!
I've spent twenty years trying to get a set of Amon Hen together, but have only managed to get copies going back to issue 22. Mallorn is just as difficult - before issue 10 they ae very thin on the ground.
The hunt goes on!

Does anybody have a copy of Mallorn 8?
I need to get hold of a copy of the report of Rayner Unwin's speach at the TS AGM. A photocopy or a scan would be very helpful.
