It has the advantage over many conference-based collections of a clear unifying theme. Within its field, its scope is comprehensive, every chapter is accessible to an intelligent reader of Tolkien, and the best essays stand comparison with any work on Tolkien published in the last decade Brian Rosebury , University of Central Lancashire "Why don't we draw wolves? To what extent are our views of European Paganism seen through a Christian bias? What scientific articles might Tolkien have read while writing his legendarium?

Nancy Martsch, 'Beyond Bree', Newsletter of the American Mensa Tolkien special interest group, October 2008.
