I just received email notification that the Birmingham 2005
Proceedings Volumes are now available. For information on ordering
see www.tolkiensociety.org/2005. The Price is $100US for Surface
Mail and $132US for Air Mail to Europe and the World.
I also recently received my copy of the Mirror Crack'd Essay
Collection edited by Lynn Forest-Hill, published by Cambridge
Scholars Publishing. As a contributor I still had to pay for
my copy (as well as paying a Permission's Fee to the Tolkien
Estate) but I did get a reasonable contributor's discount of 40%.
