My dim recollection from using these tools as a reference librarian five
years ago is that some of the journals are full text and others are only
bibliographic references. Which is Mythlore?

questions in my mind:
1) How far back will this go?
2) Did I sign a contract permitting my articles to be used this way? (I
don't necessarily object, you understand, I just wish I'd heard about this
in some other way than stumbling over it in the Yahoogroups list.)

article, all back issues of Mythlore* are available from the Society for a
reasonable fee. Even those out of stock* may be had in photocopy form.
*except the Tolkien Centenary Conference Proceedings, which as the only
"book" issue of Mythlore, and one of the best issues**, is the one people
are most likely to want. That's just plain out of print. I can't defend
the perverse policy of letting books go out of print while keeping
magazines in print permanently, and in fact I retired from the Society's
governing body so that I wouldn't have to defend it.
**Besides the quality of the articles, it's one of the few issues of the

editor's tailbone being sore or other such embarrassing nonsense.

"And we've never accepted the notion as a percentage of our GNP. Our GNP
dwarves all other countries."

issue of the TS journal _Mallorn_) still has copies available for purchase.
There was a mention in the TS bulletin _Amon Hen_ a while back about plans
to reprint the Proceedings, but as far as I know, nothing has come of that.

is understandable that a non-profit can't really manage any faster
turnaround. Unfortunately when I'm after an article, which I happen to
be at the moment :-) I'm in the middle of a project with a deadline.
When my local library can find the article, they can send it in PDF
format. This speeds things up quite a bit. I believe that this also
preserves the copyright in someway. However, in my current situation I
find myself once more out of luck.
So.... Anyone know where I can locate "The Trans-cosmic Journeys in /The
Chronicles of Narnia/," Steven Yandell, /Mythlore/ 43, vol. 12, no. I
(August 1985), pp. 9-23.
