Verlyn Flieger Festschrift (A Call for Papers)

Here's something I wanted to spread the word about: a new collection of essays in honor of Verlyn Flieger's three-plus decades of Tolkien work.

Call for Papers

"A Wilderness of Dragons":
Essays in Honor of Verlyn Flieger
. . .

An call for papers
centered on, but not limited to,
her groundbreaking work on J. R. R. Tolkien

Other possible topics include
• her work with fantasy and the Arthurian mythos
• her engagement with other authors (fantasy and non-fantasy)
• examinations or appreciations of her own fiction.

Verlyn Flieger is the author of Splintered Light,
A Question of Time, Interrupted Music, and Green Suns and Faerie,
and editor or co-editor of The Story of Kullervo and
the extended editions of Smith of Wootton Major & Tolkien On Fairy-stories.

She has been asking interesting questions,
and coming up with even more interesting answers,
since her first book.

Paper proposals: September 1st 2015
Finished papers: March 1st 2016
