Well, that one is pretty high already. Any predictions on the outcome?

Surely the success of the Sutherland auctions might have raised an eyebrow or two? My wild guess is that Mr Sutherland recommended the "Collectors Trove" to Mr Marsh...

Anyway, it's great to see all these old original manuscripts and stuff on eBay. Good luck with the auctions, Paul!

Thanks Ralf. One TSR alum heard that I was a "Grand Master of Collecting" :wink: and decided to drop me an email! :lol:

Actually, he was talking about the materials online and I emailed him to ask if he'd like me to auction off his collection. I think he was pretty suprised that I was able to organize the collection into so many lots. I think Steve inititally thought the Planes Stuff would all be in one lot.

I have a few other TSR alum that are also calling on me to auction their collections. Hopefully, I'll be able to bring these to you folks after Christmas.


Futures Bright,

Paul

I gues somebody gets to the lucky dude to handle and sell this stuff,  some of it may be hard to let go of though!

All Hail to the Winners!  

Wow, I'm really pleased for Paul and Stephen that his mss. went for so much :D

Different Worlds is still very interested in trying to publish the mss. for Different Worlds:  improvstone, invincibleoverlord, mbassoc2003 (if you're on these boards), and dblizzard (ditto), expect an email from my after the holidays!

improvstone---

Take a look at the books that DWP's producing---they don't look like 3e products that are full of tattoos, body piercings, spandex armor, etc. :D

If you're serious Mike and want a partner I'd publish it with you. Credit and royalties would have to go to Steven and other's for sure, anything extra we could spend on more D&D stuff :D . The artists you mentioned are some of my favorites too; maybe we could even find an older unpublished piece of art to go with the "lost manuscript" it would be a nice tie in. Just think a new 1st edition AD&D hardback rulebook with era cover art! 8O  8O  8O

BTW; I saw that Harami had a strong presence in and around these auctions. Does anyone talk to him anymore? I hate to think that there are serious collectors in our community with no line of communication due to whatever circumstances. He must lurk around these boards as a guest now and then; how could he resist. Come on back David  :!:

We email back and forth from time to time, so he's not dead. (He may have become a lich, you never know... :twisted: ).  I've already mentioned his presence is missed. ;)

I'd be happy to help in any such endeavor.  I'd like to think that DWP's well-positioned to perform the kind of printing and publishing functions that you're all talking about, but I also don't want to shove us down your throats if you're intent on doing this yourselves vs. with an existing publisher :D

Put me down for an advanced order as well.  
I'm with grodog, what's with the spandex armor, tattoos galore and body piercings in the new art?  Kids today... or I guess I'm just becoming an old fogey.   :wink:

I know what you're saying Allan, DWP would be the better option. Really its up to Mike he's got the whole bag; I was just offering my aid. As far as making any coin on the project I really don't care unless others are making a dime, maybe even a charitable cause if there's any profit. Obviously it would be a whole different story if DWP published the book. Frankly I don't see that I have much as far as a bargaining chip with the Plane of Fire chapter other than a reference as to how the book was going to be originally edited.

I'd just like to see it, and would help in any way………Can you imagine holding a new 1st edition hardback orange-spine with Easley or the like art adorning the cover! I can see the Title now……….Planes of Existence by Gygax and Marsh………. :D  8O  :D

Mike lets compare notes between the manuscript and the edit draft copy when we get them.

BTW did you say you're in Australia 8) ? I'm in Florida 8)
