Henry Gee sent this news along about the forthcoming issue of Mallorn from The Tolkien Society:


Dear All - I'm almost at the beginning at the end of pulling Mallorn 47 together, so much so that I can give you an idea of the contents. Please note that this might not be the final FINAL line-up, and might change subject to the vicissitudes of production.

Editorial: The Ode Goes Ever On - Henry Gee discovers poetry.

Letters to the Editor: Virginia Luling responds to David Doughan's article on the womens' movement (in M45) and Richard Gonsowski commends Murray Smith for his article on Roman Law (M46).

Reviews: Henry Gee on Dimitra Fimi; Lynn Forest-Hill on Caroline Davidson; David Doughan on On Fairy Stories; Joel Franz on Lynn Forest-Hill; Colin Duriez on the Tolkien Society 2005 volumes; and at least one more thing I can't remember (sorry).

Commentary; Dale Nelson on Tolkien and Rider Haggard; Franco Manni on History Real and Imagined; Alex Lewis on Fairy Stories; Lou Markos on the echoes of Homer in Tolkien - and yes, other stuff.

Poetry (yes, there will be some)

Fiction from Lynn Forest-Hill and RPG

Well I'm Back: Zak Cramer cooks up tasty seasonal recipes using dragon meat.

Greetings!

Well, it never rains but it pours! Here are a couple of news items that I thought folks would like to know about. Information about both of these is also posted on my website at http://www.JefMurray.com

- The Tolkien Library (http://www.TolkienLibrary.com ) has just posted an extensive interview that Pieter Collier and I had on the development of the illustrations for "Black & White Ogre Country: The Lost Tales of Hilary Tolkien". You can read the interview, which also includes a few of the illustrations from the book, at: http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/pres/85 ... nd_White_Ogre_Counrty.php

- The second issue of Silver Leaves, the journal of the White Tree Fund (see http://www.whitetreefund.org ) is now out. It focuses on the Inklings, and somewhat more specifically on C.S. Lewis than the other members of that august society. The editors of the journal kindly used several of my Narnia-inspired paintings to complement the other illustrations in the issue. Please take a look!

My February newsletter should also be out in a week or so, and there should be some additional newsworthy items included in it!

Nai i Cala oio-siluva (may the Light ever-shine)

Jef

I had the same thought.

There is bound to be the occasional questionable signature through any channel (auction houses, dealer, eBay), and to his credit the Tolkien Bookshelf does a good job bringing a large number of signed items to market at reasonable prices. In order to get lower prices on signed Tolkien items, you have to be willing to accept less provenance or a complete lack of it.

That is a risk that David seems to be willing to take, too - carrying items with lack of provenance runs the risk of getting his reputation tarnished when something is "identified" as a fake. (It is a whole separate topic to discuss when something that a handful of experts calls a fake, when there are likely other experts out there who think it is real.) To David's enduring credit, he has pulled from sale every item that has reached "fake" consensus that I know of.

This one at a cursory level looks pretty good to me. Looks like a fountain pen rather than a ball-point, and nothing obviously wrong with it.

Hi Urban,

I have a little information online already about the doodle-kits -

http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/w ... p?page=Bakshi+Doodle+Kits

I think those are the ones you are talking about. Unfortunately no images online yet, though Fangorn might be able to provide those. Do these sound like what you are looking for?

If they are, and you do get some pics eventually, I would love if you share the photos so I can post them in the Guide. Thanks!

p.s. I have some of the books illustrated with the animated cel art from the Bakshi movie. I will see what I can post over the next few days about them.
