      The Index to the published Mythcon Conference Proceedings is now online!
      Only a few Mythcon proceedings have been published; after Mythcon
      III, presenters were encouraged to submit their papers to Mythlore instead. This
      supplement indexes proceedings from the following conferences:
      • Narnia Conference: November 29, 1969, at Palms Park, West Los Angeles,
      • Mythcon I: September 4‐7, 1970, at Harvey Mudd College, Claremont CA
      • Mythcon II: September 3‐6, 1971, at Francisco Torres Conference Center,
      Santa Barbara CA
      • Mythcon III: June 30‐July 4, 1972, at Edgewater Hyatt House, Long Beach
      CA, in conjunction with Westercon XXV
      • Mythcon XVI: July 26‐29, 1985, at Wheaton College, Wheaton IL
      • Mythcon XXIX: July 15‐20, 1998, at Wheaton College, Wheaton IL
      Specifically NOT included are the Proceedings of Mythcon XXIII, the
      joint conference with the Tolkien Society in 1992. These proceedings were
      published as a joint issue of Mythlore and Mallorn (Mythlore whole number 80),
      and are fully indexed in the main Mythlore Index.
      Proceedings of the Narnia Conference and the first three Mythcons are
      available for sale on the society website under Mythcon Proceedings and
      Program Books. The Mythcon XXIX C.S. Lewis/Owen Barfield Souvenir Book is
      a special case—it is not technically a proceedings, but nevertheless includes some
      material that should be indexed, in particular the bibliographies and an item by
      Owen Barfield himself. It is also available in the Mythcon Proceedings and
      Program Books section of the online store.
      The Proceedings for Mythcon XVI, however, is not available for sale—it
      was never formally printed but is simply a mimeographed collection of papers
      with an overall pagination that exists in a few scattered copies. All but six of the
      items collected were later reprinted in Mythlore, and these versions should be
      preferred for citation purposes as the most official, revised, and polished
      versions. (When this is the case, the citation for the later reprinting is included in
      the entry.) However, this collection is held in several libraries and collections,
      and because of the six never‐published items I felt it was important to include it
      in its entirety. At this writing, copies are known to be held at Hope College, the
      Wade Center at Wheaton College, and the special collections at Marquette
