Volume 7 of Tolkien Studies: An Annual Scholarly Review finally goes to the printer today, and I can release the table of contents. This is the largest volume ever, and I regret to say that some material planned for this volume didn't make it in. A long book review got bumped to the next volume, and the Cumulative Index to volumes one through five will be available, for the time being, only through Project Muse, once volume 7 goes live (soon). Subscribers to the hardcover volumes of Tolkien Studies should receive their copies sometime in August.
