I found a couple of copies of Michael Drout's Of Sorcerers and Men - Tolkien and the Roots of Modern Fantasy Literature at a great price, and so am offering them here to anyone interested. 8 CDs, a full university course for only $20 (including shipping in the USA)!

Deagol has updated his website with updates to the 1974-1976 section, as well as updating the recent paperback releases. Check it out at:

(He's busy at work, or I am sure he would post the update here himself. )

While this is old news to many, Daeron's Books in the UK closed it's doors back in March. They will be missed!

I have removed the website from the links section, sadly.
