Tolkien and the Study of His Sources: Critical Essays

Jason Fisher

From Jason's Blog

http://lingwe.blogspot.com/2011/09/re ... excerpt-from-my-book.html

Book Excerpt

McFarland works closely with Google Books to provide previews of the titles they publish. I’m happy to report you can now read an excerpt from my book, Tolkien and the Study of His Sources, online. Just point your browsers here. The amount you’ll get to read may vary depending on where in the world you are, but if you can see what I am seeing right now, then you’ll be getting the preface, all of Tom Shippey’s essay, the first couple of pages of E.L. Risden’s essay, and some of the front matter (copyright, abbreviations, acknowledgements, table of contents, epigraph). A little more than a month out, the book seems to be selling well, as near as I can judge. It is starting to appear in library catalogs. Thirteen now report having it on their shelves, a new one every two or three days, though the nearest to me so far is more than 500 miles away! And I’m starting to hear from people who have read it. As of today, there are four reviews at Amazon.com, all of them five stars. There is another at GoodReads, also five stars. I’ve been getting some private email about the book as well — please keep the feedback coming! Reader reactions so far are overwhelmingly positive, which I find extremely gratifying. I’ll be sharing published reviews as they appear. The first of these are likely to be in the monthly periodicals, Mythprint and Amon Hen, with Mythlore following this fall, and other journals such as Tolkien Studies in the new year. If anybody sees a review somewhere, or a mention of the book that goes beyond merely listing it, I’d really appreciate hearing from you.

Tyalië Tyelelliéva is one fanzine that I have been unable to track down.
I have a photocopy of issue 17 only and have never seen an original one for sale. Has anyone been able to contact the editor, Lisa Star?

Yes, it's me, Mary the Hobbit. My page is woefully out of date, I haven't done any collecting for a year. Then I popped in the other day and saw your post!

I've now ordered Basque from Casa del Libro and also a Bengali Hobbit. Maybe they'll arrive by Bilbo's birthday!

@garm & @khamul:
Thanks for your comments. The design is not actually mine. I saw a website about Tolkien many years ago and doownloaded the CSS file. I didn't copy the website's name so I cannot give credit (it was soooo long ago). I just added more images, reformatte, added some runes...

@maryb
If I'm not mistaken, you should be Mary from neko.com ;-P
Sorry I didn't send you an email about the Bengali hobbit as I did about the Basque one. By the way, I dont know if you got your Basque copy yet or you didn't order. I've just check your site and it's not listed. I have just checked and it's available in casadellibro.com (search for "hobbita"), just in case you want it ;-)

Cheers,
Gololo
