A scholarly, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of mythopoeic literature
Tolkien Journal was started by New York Tolkien Society founder Richard Plotz in 1965. Dick Plotz stepped down after issue #8 and Ed Meškys took over the society and the journal. In issue #15, Meškys announced the permanent merger of the Tolkien Society of America with the Mythopoeic Society and of Tolkien Journal with Mythlore. Glen GoodKnight became editor with the next issue, and the Tolkien Journal name and issue numbering was added to the masthead for the next three numbers. With Mythlore #12, the new subtitle “A Journal of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams Studies” replaced Tolkien Journal on the table of contents page.
Since none of the stand-alone issues of Tolkien Journal are indexed in the MLA Bibliography, we hope this supplementary index will help users locate the articles which were published at times when Tolkien Journal did not appear as a joint issue with Mythlore or Orcrist (which are indexed, albeit not in their entirety, in MLA), and provide more useful subject headings than MLA for the specialist. All citations in this supplement have been incorporated in the Mythlore Index Plus, which can be downloaded as a free PDF.
All issues of Tolkien Journal are available in our store under “Inactive Publications.”
