Yes, does anyone know anything?

It would be nice even if the first version were back in print.

And how about the TCA? I see only 4 issues of the magazine for 2018, and none listed for 2019. Hope this doesn't mean that the end has come.

I can tell you that Lud is looking great and doing well.

I think that Norman's book is from the first box of freshly printed copies. You might want to put your name in with the TCA to reserve a copy.

The TCA will end publication of The Tube Collector at the end of this year.
The clubs web page and my TCA email reflector will continue for now.

Like Russ said, Lud cracked open the first box of second edition books after a collection auction at the TCA museum (former TCA member's collection). The second edition is about 1/2-inch thick and covers something on the order of three times as many tubes as the original edition. I expect that the book will be offered to the public in short order so hold back on your hail mary bids for the first edition!

Last I spoke with him, he said he didn't think he would do another addition. Glad he changed his mind. Hope I can buy a few (I want to give them as gifts).

They should be available from tube vendors within a month or two.

How about a publishing list of those participating tube vendors who will be selling Tube Lore II :wink:

One could at least reserve a copy in several places, seeing that some want multiples...

Still, regretting not buying Tube Lore I, never thought it would be so popular until too late :cry:

No, not interested in an offer for $500+... :evil:

For $500 they could have mine for sure, I'd even pay postage :)

Hmmm. I have a copy of Tube Lore from years ago. Actually, years ago I called Lud and he sent it to me with the supplements etc. I guess an updated/enlarged version may be good; I don't know. Hopefully, it will be available for a reasonable price...
