Reasons to Revisit Middle-earth (Second Edition)

Each contributor delves into a core facet of Tolkien’s master work, and each one illuminates something essential yet easily overlooked. In these pages, casual fans and accomplished scholars will find fresh insights and renewed inspiration. This new edition issues a heartfelt invitation for you to return to Middle-earth and discover what you have been missing.

Loremasters and Libraries, Mythopoeic Press

Loremasters and Libraries in Fantasy and Science Fiction

A Gedenkschrift for David Oberhelman

David Dean Oberhelman (1965-2018) was a librarian and scholar with wide-ranging research interests, who had a long association with the Mythopoeic Society. He was an enthusiastic supporter of other scholars, a gifted editor, and an outstanding teacher. The core concept of this collection developed from panel discussions in which David drew together a group of fantasy, science fiction, and comics scholars to discuss libraries, librarians, archives, research, writing, and related topics as depicted in these genres.
