As it winds down, hope everyone's summer was great.

Posted the Calendar of the Month for September this morning. It is a German language variant of a particular favorite of mine. Thus, it is somewhat uncommon.

Also added a German language Shire Reckoning calendar to the catalog. It is available in .pdf format from the creator's website.

Hope you enjoy them!

Made a couple of REALLY nice acquistions recently. Posted the complete collection (18) of calendars from Colin Williams, a recently discovered illustrator, and a newly discovered variant of the 1974 A&U issue from New Zealand on my website today:

As always, interested in your comments and visits.

Happy Autumn to all!

Hello to all -

Posted the new Calendar of the Month for October today. It is the first of a series of three calendars from The Hobbit from a recently discovered illustrator. (OK, that pretty much tells you what November and December will be!) You can find it at:

And the first of the 2008 calendars are out - which you can also find on my website. Hope you enjoy them. As always, would love to hear your comments and/or questions!

Hi Anthony -

I had this dream that after collecting so many calendars, I would like to create one. With Ted and Jef providing illustrations (some previously unpublished!) and my daughter doing the publishing (all of those tuition bills are now paying off!), I am not really doing much other than facilitating communications (OK, and getting the Shire Reckoning and important dates correct). I can not wait 'til I have one of them in my hands. This is really exciting for me!

Have the 2008 Colin Williams calendars coming. Assuming that the 08 HI calendar is a success and we do an '09, he said that he would love to be included.

Also have a previously undiscovered variant of the 74 A&U calendar published in New Zealand heading my way, too.

And I just received a mint (unopened mailer) copy of the 74 Ballantine calendar.

All in all, a pretty good time to be a calendar collector!

Hi Phil and Anthony,

who would be best between you two to interview about this with some questions for the Guide? I have a copy coming, so I will get to see it first-hand soon, and I can't wait.
