      Much as he's pleased with how his paper on _Lord of the Rings_ plot
      twists came out, David Something blanches slightly at the thought of it
      being used to represent his scholarly work online. Fortunately it was
      published less than a year ago, so it's not yet eligible and he doesn't
      have to think about it yet.

      Of his Mythlore papers to date, the one he would most prefer to be
      represented by is his biography of Hugo Dyson -- but as he has hopes of
      it appearing in a book some day, he will decline permission for that to
      appear online also.

      The Mythlore paper he would most like to nominate for this purpose -
      possibly the all-time best paper in that journal - is Melanie Rawls's
      first paper, on the role of women in LOTR, an outstanding refutation of
      the tired cliche that Tolkien's female characters are not deep or
      significiant. But good luck at locating the author, whom I fear has
      softly and suddenly vanished away.
