    Frank briefly reviews The Tolkien Relations and Tolkien and the Critics. Joe gives a humerous review of Leonard Nimoy's singing ability. The Orc Tower drawing is fairly amateurish, but that could be partially due to the mimeo effect. "Of Sting..." is a general overview of heroic weapons in The Lord of the Rings as well as other sagas, such as Kalevala. The John Closson plate is visually stunning, a masterful piece of calligraphy (as is the English translation on page 33). In the letters section, Bob Foster tears the prior issue's article on Beryl stones apart.
