Tributes To J.R.R. Tolkien, Glen H. Goodknight

Mythlore: A Journal of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and Mythopoeic Literature

"The following are tributes written by readers of Mythlore. So many tributes have been submitted, that despite those given here, there are many more that will have to wait until the next issue. If you do not find your tribute here, please understand. Many of the tributes are very personal, but that is Tolkien's magic as a writer — he invites us as readers to participate in the act of sub-creation: our own imaginations complete the details of the stories, and they become part of us." — Glen GoodKnight
