LOTR Specials at Comic-Con 2004

William Wu, is proud to announce a special deal with Houghton Mifflin, publishers of the Lord of the Rings books. In years previous, Houghton Mifflin has exhibited their full line of Tolkien books and related items, but never sold them. This year, in an effort to reach more fans and readers, a deal was set up with this independent bookseller to provide a wide range of Houghton Mifflin’s catalog of LOTR books.

In addition to the full line of current releases, Mr. Wu will be taking advance orders for the forthcoming 50th Anniversary Edition of The Lord of the Rings. Please visit the Houghton Mifflin booth at #2435 to get details on all the upcoming releases, and then just walk a short distance to the end of the 2400 aisle to find booth #5440. Mr. Wu’s booth is conveniently located mere yards from the Lord of the Rings pavilion, as well as being near a concession stand and lounge area along the back wall of the convention center.

However, the list of books is not limited to Lord of the Rings titles. Mr. Wu has an extensive selection of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Mystery books to choose from. Everything from mainstream titles to the obscure and hard to find, with many of them being autographed First Editions. Most of the books are used, with some of them being well preserved classics from the 1930’s thru to the 1960’s, as well as more modern works. You won’t see a more eclectic selection of books anywhere in the hall.

Accompanying the books are collectibles and memorabilia, mostly imported, for such film titles as Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Nightmare Before Christmas and Star Wars. But just like many of the books, most of these collectibles are not items you will see anywhere else in the hall. An example would be the Star Wars 1 year anniversary poster with the birthday cake. It is one of the rarest of all the Star Wars posters, and will be just one of many hard to find Star Wars posters for sale. Another example is the 74th Oscar Poster, with the Alex Ross artwork, that was signed by all the LOTR filmmakers who attended TORN’s One Party to Rule them All. The following year, the 75th anniversary Oscar poster was decided to be too bland, so the American Library Association’s “Moving Words inspire Moving Pictures” poster was brought and signed at the Two Towers, One Party event. There will also be lunch boxes from Australia, cellphone straps from Japan and theater programs from Germany to choose from.
