      Due to the vastly increased demands of time required for subscription
      and back-issue-order fulfillment as readership has grown past 500; and
      to the reality of irregular publication dictated by its changed focus
      on publishing new primary material; and in order to remove format
      constraints on the size and scope of its contents, _Vinyar Tengwar_
      will undergo a format change and a switch to per-issue ordering after
      the publication of issue 50. New subscriptions will be accepted only
      through issue 50. Those whose subscriptions currently extend past issue
      50 will be refunded the pro-rated balance for all issues past 50.
      Starting with issue 51, _VT_ will be produced and published through the
      print-on-demand services of Lulu.com. In addition, effective
      immediately, back-issue orders will no longer be accepted or filled by
      the editor. Instead, back-issue collections will be published and
      available for order as a series of softcover volumes through Lulu.com
      <http://books.lulu.com/themes/shop/homepage.php> (in both pefect- and
      spiral-bound formats), as _The Collected Vinyar Tengwar_, beginning
      shortly with vol. 5a, which will contain issues 40 through 46. (As new
      issues are published, they will be added to new, expanded issues of
      this volume, until it is finalized as vol. 5 with the inclusion of
      issue 49.) Other volumes will follow, collecting issues 1–9 (vol. 1),
      10–19 (vol. 2), 20–29 (vol. 3), and 30–39 (vol. 4), in reverse order
      and as they are converted to the new format and readied for
      publication. Watch this page for futher announcements of availability
      of these back-issue volumes. (Note that all back-issue orders currently
      in hand will be honored, and will be mailed out shortly.)

      I would like to acknowledge here once again the invaluable assistance of
      Karyn Traphagen, who is helping with the conversion of _VT back-issues
      to the new format. Please send good thoughts her way!
