Thanks also to Namiko Hitotsubashi, Paula Smith-MacDonald, Vaughn Howland, Raquel D’Oyen, and Berni Phillips, and also to West Virginia University Press, Carrie Mullen, and especially to Hilary Att- field for all her work in the production of the issue. The editors would like especially to thank Paul Edmund Thomas for his generosity with his time and expertise, and for his wise guidance through our transitions. Finally, we acknowledge a special debt of gratitude to our anony- mous, outside reviewers who with their collegial service contribute so much to Tolkien Studies.
