      Does anyone on this list have a complete set of THE WESTMARCH
      CHRONICLE, Bernie Zuber's Tolkien newsletter [1978-1982]? I'm trying
      to find a copy of a brief article I did on Ossian & Tolkien,
      suggesting parallels between the impulse behind Macpherson's forged
      legendry and JRRT's re-inventing of lost myth, but what issues I had
      are long lost. I don't know what issue my piece appeared in; probably
      towards the end of the magazine's run. Certainly not before fall 1979.
      Any help much appreciated.
      And a Merry Christmas to all.

            Well, a lot of digging and hauling about of heavy boxes in the garage
            turned up my Westmarch Chronicles (along with a lot of other Tolkien
            zines), but my collection isn't as extensive as I thought it was (it
            only goes from Volume 5, No. 2 to Volume 6, No. 2) and unfortunately,
            John, your article wasn't in any of those issues. Apologies!

              Well, four people have now searched their collections and not come up with it, so I m left to conclude that I m wrong about its having seen print there.

                Well, four people have now searched their collections and not come up
                with it, so I'm left to conclude that I'm wrong about its having seen
                print there. Perhaps I sent it in near the end of the newsletter's
                run and the journal stopped before it appeared. Too bad; it would
                have been a useful starting point for a re-reading of MacPherson I'm
                about to embark on soon.

                Many thanks to all who tried to help me locate this bibliographic
                ghost (Gary, Joe, Margaret, & David); hope your trip down memory lane
                was enjoyable in its own right. Let me know if sometime I can return
                the favor.

                And a happy Twelfth Day of Christmas to you all.
