The Tolkien Collector

Jun. 11, 2017, 3:17pm

My set of The Tolkien Collector edited by Christina Scull consists of issues 1 through 33, ?1992-2013, plus the 1999 Index to issues 1-20. The last issue I've got is dated July 2013. Are there any more recent issues?

This is what Christina and Wayne's website says about The Tolkien Collector:
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.

It seems to imply, without explicitly stating, that more issues will be published but that the schedule will be irregular. This is as of 2014.

Fwiw, they don't seem to have posted anything on their site since November 2016.

I'm finding this old thread while searching for where to obtain copies of The Tolkien Collector. They seem to not be present in any of the typical places I'd look for books or resources like this (i.e. Abebooks, eBay, etc.). Any suggestions or individuals looking to sell their copies?
