Douglas Anderson is no longer involved with Tolkien Studies.

The end has been reached. I have ceased all involvement with Tolkien Studies. Things could have been otherwise, but under the new climate of Mordor-styled publishing, I don’t fit in. Like the scientists in the articles referenced above, I must question the value of putting a pay-wall between a scholarly journal and its audience. It certainly doesn’t help scholarship by diminishing access to a journal solely in order to fill the coffers of its publisher and distributor. The old model is broken, and there needs to be a new one. A fair one.

The Estate are not going after people using Shire in their name but Enterprises (Saul & Co) are, FITS look out.

Nearly everyone in England, Scotland, and Wales have lived in an area called a shire for at least 1000 years

Another bizarre statement from FITS

"So few original jackets exist it was thought they didn't produce any due to paper shortages."

My copy has a dustwrapper, as did every copy that was made.
