Publication News


After the Executive Committee meeting in February 2014 we are pleased to announce our long-term programme of publication. We decided that 3 titles a year was as much as could reasonably done with the commitments everyone has, and determined that as a general rule, titles should come out the month after the Chronicle’s normal publication month, enabling each to appear with a means of ordering it in the immediately preceding Chronicle. Having two forthcoming titles announced in the January Chronicle this year has made some unnecessary complications for Gillian and Janice, which we do not want to risk repeating, or to cause problems for Hilary as she takes over from Gillian. 

So as the Chronicles come out in May, September and January, our books will normally come out in June, October and February.
We are fairly settled for the order of things until the end of 2015, but may make some changes in 2016/17. But as things stand:

2014
June – The Two Form-Captains [already published] 
October – Maidlin to the Rescue [already published]

2015
February – The Captain of the Fifth [order form in January 2015 Chronicle, available Feb/Mar 2015]
June – A Fiddler for the Abbey [order form in May 2015 Chronicle]
October – The Junior Captain [order form in September 2015 Chronicle]

2016 [provisional]
February – Guardians of the Abbey
June – The School Without A Name
October – Rachel in the Abbey 

2017 [provisional]
February – Ven at Gregory’s
June – A School Camp-Fire
October – The Troubles of Tazy

Pictures will appear here as titles become available to order.

The EJO Society has been granted reprinting rights for the titles originally published by Chambers and Muller, to which EJO's niece holds the copyright. Naturally, we started with Girls of the Hamlet Club - the true first title in the Abbey Series! This is now SOLD OUT.  Also O/P are Biddy's Secret, Joy's New Adventure, and Heights of Heidelberg

We are also currently out of stock of the Comparisons Booklet.

Rosaly's New School came out in October 2013, it being its centenary year; An Abbey Champion was published in February 2014;  The Two Form-Captains in May 2014, and Maidlin to the Rescue in October 2014. We still have good stocks of all these titles. 
 
We are now accepting orders for Captain of the Fifth, and the current sales catalogue includes it. This catalogue can be accessed by clicking on this link to the Winter 2014/15 order form or trying the file link at the bottom of the page

The catalogue includes an order form for you to print and send to Hilary, our Merchandise Coordinator, whose details are shown on it. You should not need to do this if you are a member of the EJO Society, as there was a printed copy sent out with your January 2015 Chronicle.
 
If you have problems viewing or printing the catalogue, please email the EJO Society.
 
NB the first prices shown here are for EJO Society members. Non-member prices are a little more, and shown in brackets. This is because of our changed tax liability consequent upon the Society's adopting a Constitution.
 
We are now accepting trade and bulk orders for Captain of the Fifth - please email the EJO Society! Ordering for all our in-print titles is also available through Nielsens.  
 
We accept PayPal, so there is no problem for people ordering single copies from abroad, just email the Merchandise Officer with your order - which should include your address and whether you want your books sent by airmail [extra £8.50 per item] or surface post [extra £5 per item] - and ask for a PayPal invoice. The p&p for UK orders is £2.50 per item, and we are also happy to take UK orders paid via PayPal.
 
Still available too is The Fine Companion - the story of The Pixie's caravan trip from Oxford to the Folk Dance Vacation School at Stratford upon Avon in the summer of 1914 - just as The Great War broke out.
