19687Re: Elves as Artists
- Apr 14, 2008It makes me chuckle to find myself cited in such company. Sort of
a "What? Me?" reaction.
That said, most of the Mythopoesis columns are also available online,
on my website: http://www.scribblerworks.us/works/bibliography.htm
I think I may have overlooked the "Creation and Derivation" column.
Either that, or I chose not to put it online because it dealt with
some specific matters regarding Tolkien's work. (I've chosen not to
put my Tolkien scholarship online, since I'm considering collecting
it for a volume.)
