put the published SILMARILLION together and the parts CJRT himself
created; I won't give away any spoilers, but what was said and read
squares with what Prof. Clyde Kilby told me in 1977 about the

Absolutely the only fault with the paper was that it was scheduled
opposite Diana Pavlac Glyer's presentation on how she put her together,
which my wife Jo judged to be one of Mythcon 38's high points.

Grateful congratulations for all the Mythcon 38 committee for creating
such a fine long-expected party.
