Tolkien Studies 19: an announcement

On behalf of myself and my co-editors, Michael D.C. Drout and Verlyn Flieger, here are the expected contents of volume 19 of the journal Tolkien Studies: An Annual Scholarly Review. All of the works are now in the hands of our publisher, West Virginia University Press, and the volume is scheduled to be published in softcover and on Project MUSE later this year. This is the 2022 volume, whose issue was delayed due to the preparation of the Supplement which was published a couple months ago. But we always intended on a full 2022 issue, and work on the contents for v. 20 for 2023 is already under way. - David Bratman, co-editor
