The Tolkien Collector
Tolkien Collector no. 32 was published at the end of December 2011.
No. 33 is printing now and will be available soon.
note: We are still reprinting earlier numbers, having been delayed further by computer malfunctions, changes in software, and a broken stapler. For those who have asked to purchase back issues, be advised that we have kept a list of requests and a record of payments made, and will notify you when your order is ready.
The Tolkien Collector is an occasional magazine for collectors of J.R.R. Tolkien. Each issue, usually 36 pages, includes news about new and forthcoming books by and about Tolkien, translations of Tolkien’s works, recordings, videos, and other Tolkieniana; and feature articles on aspects of collecting Tolkien and Tolkien bibliography.
Beginning with no. 33, The Tolkien Collector is available on a per-issue basis. Because it appears so infrequently, it seems more fair to offer it per issue, as published, rather than accept subscriptions. In this way, too, we can adjust the price more readily in response to increases in the cost of postage or materials. Existing subscriptions, however, will be honoured for as long as they last. Subscribers will be notified when their subscriptions have expired, and we will announce in our blog, and on appropriate websites, when a new issue is available. The current per-issue prices are $3.25 to the U.S.A., $3.75 to Canada, and $4.75 elsewhere. Subscriptions must be paid in U.S. dollars or the equivalent in British pounds sterling (converted according to the exchange rate as of the date of payment). Please make cheques or U.S. postal money orders payable to Christina Scull and send to:
30 Talcott Road
Williamstown, MA 01267
All orders must be prepaid. Dollar cheques must be drawn on a U.S. bank; payment in British pounds must be by cheque drawn on a U.K. bank. Payment is also accepted via PayPal, sent to Wayne.G.Hammond@williams.edu. Payment must be made in U.S. dollars only, and only by direct transfer: as ours is a personal PayPal account, payments by credit card are prohibited (but debit card payments are okay).
Back issues are not currently available except for nos. 27–32. Back issue prices are the same as current issue prices, above. A sample copy of the latest issue is available at the same price. A list of feature articles in the Tolkien Collector, and other information of note, may be found on this page.
A few copies of nos. 27 and 28 were returned to us because the subscriber’s address has changed. We would be grateful to receive current addresses for Michael G. Benz, Andrew Morabito, and Matthew R. Williams, so that we can supply the copies owed them.
