The Mathomium review is a reprint (also appearing in Hither Shore Vol. 3). The Press Release is verbatim from other online sources. The Dunning articles are excellent reads on language in Tolkien and elsewhere - I especially liked the difficulties of translation (especially of jokes) that tied in with the "Bootless" piece quite well. Learning Not to Touch is the first published book of poetry by Michael Tolkien - the reviewer stretches to find any connection to his grandfather. A solid argument for Tolkien's debt to Haggard is made by Dale Nelson.
