Re: Illustrated Silmarillion
- I believe Joan means the one illustrated by Ted Naismith (sp?). I have
a distinct memory of buying that for David for either our wedding
anniversary (June) or his birthday (March).

It's 1999, where's Moonbase Alpha?
- Joan, I agree with Ted--you're probably thinking of the Ted Nasmith
illustrated edition, which came out almost a year ago. Since the average
bookstore doesn't hang onto things very long, they probably just didn.t
have any left. You won't be sorry if you buy it, and Amazon.com has it for
only $24.50--a bargain.
