This is the third volume of Tolkien Studies, a refereed journal dedicated to the scholarly study of the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. Tolkien Studies is the first academic journal solely devoted to Tolkien. As editors, our goal is to publish excellent scholarship on Tolkien as well as to gather useful research information, reviews, notes, documents, and bibliographical material. All articles published have been subject to anonymous, external review. All articles require a positive judgment from the Editors before being sent to reviewers, and articles that the Editors agreed upon had to receive a least one positive evaluation from an external referee in order to be published. In the cases of articles by individuals associated with the journal in any way, each article had to receive at least two positive evaluations from two different outside reviewers. All identifying information was removed from the articles before they were sent to the reviewers, and all reviewer comments were likewise anonymously conveyed to the authors of the articles. The Editors agreed to be bound by the recommendations of the outside referees. Douglas A. Anderson Michael D.C. Drout Verlyn Flieger Notes on Submissions Tolkien Studies seeks works of scholarly quality and depth. Substantial essays and shorter, "Notes and Documents" pieces are both welcome. Submissions should be double-spaced throughout and use parenthetical citations in the (Author page) form. A Works Cited page should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. All citations to Tolkien's works should follow the "Conventions and Abbreviations" of Tolkien Studies. Self-addressed, stamped envelopes should accompany all correspondence unless the author wishes to communicate via email and does not wish the hard-copy manuscript to be returned, in which case this requirement is waived. Electronic submissions are preferred. These should be sent to Verlyn Flieger (firstname.lastname@example.org) as attachments. Microsoft Word is the preferred word-processing program.
