| Filed under: Collecting NewsJlong | July 28, 2011 @ 7:57 am (Views: 5500)

Jason Fisher writes, "It's finally here! My new book, Tolkien and the Study of His Sources: Critical Essays, is in print at last! I hope you will all read it and let me know what you think!"

He also notes that "Amazon shows a bogus availability date, but that will be squared away as soon as they check the books in at their warehouse(s)."
