      It 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.)

      excellent resource, though I don't know that Tolkien ever read it.
