Default A couple of new items!

I recently received a new (still in shrink wrap!) copy of Three Gothic Novels. I have a lot of ephemera regarding the publishing of this omnibus and have been looking for a nice copy to go with the papers, but never ever thought I'd find a copy still in shrink wrap! Who could ask for more!??! (ok to have Anne's signature, well that would be great!)


The other item I just received today!! I'm very excited about this as I never thought to have it to go with the tape Dragonsongs.

(we're looking at the Dragonsongs tape not the interview)

I received the sheet music....Menolly's Sea Songs!!! A special pre-publication edition with music by Joanne Forman and the words (of course) by Anne McCaffrey. It's only 7 pages long but oh so neat! I'm including pictures of it in its entirety for everyone to enjoy.










This was published back in 1983....this is the 25th birthday of this publication! What a way to celebrate!

Dragonsongs! Yep I remeber that one! Its was so good, the poor tape copy of it was worn out, right in the beging of the tape. At my local libary. Just like a few others I recall. LOL

Also did the Dragonsongbook come out?

LOL, Hans! Yes, I think a Highlight is definitely warranted for these two items!

Rare.......I'd say so. I've never seen the tape for sale since I found it, gosh, 9 or 10 years ago when I bought it. I paid a lot at the time but I think it was well worth it since another has yet to be found. And the sheet music, well, I'd never seen it before at all so HAD to have this one! The 'set' ya know.

P'ter - I don't know about the book but will find out when I manage to do the highlight.

You'll get them in time, Mawra! I had to wait almost 10 years for the sheet music. Patience......sometimes lots of it are needed.

Congratulations Becky on an excellent set of goodies! Other than the recent auction, I have not seen any of these (tapes and songs) for sale anywhere!

But at least there is hope.....

Larry......there is always hope!

Wow, I'll have to do a highlight on the Anne Interview tape too when the Luna I just got on eBay comes in. (that is if they're the same interview and I think they are!) So two highlights to do!

Maelin, maybe you'll get to see more of both in the future when I do my highlights.
