So, last week I saw that the list of finalists for the 2020 Mythopoeic Awards has been announced.
And I'm happy to see among them A WILDERNESS OF DRAGONS: ESSAYS IN HONOR OF VERLYN FLIEGER.
Here are all five finalists for the award in Inklings Scholarship:
Amendt-Raduege, Amy. “The Sweet and the Bitter”: Death and Dying in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. Kent, Ohio: The Kent State University Press, 2018.
Fimi, Dimitri. Sub-creating Arda: World-building in J.R.R. Tolkien's Work, its Precursors and its Legacies. Walking Tree Publishers, 2019.
Johnson, Kirstin Jeffrey, and Michael Partridge. Informing the Inklings: George Macdonald and the Victorian Roots of Modern Fantasy. Winged Lion Press. 2018
McIlwaine, Catherine. Tolkien: Maker of Middle-Earth. Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, Great Britain; England; Oxford, 2018.
Rateliff, John D. Ed. A Wilderness of Dragons: Essays in Honor of Verlyn Flieger. Gabbro Head, 2018.
I've read or skimmed all but one of these* and can say that we're in good company.
Congratulations to all the contributors, and to all the nominees.
*while I hear good things about the Johnson & Patridge book, MacDonald is a little outside my purview, so it's further down on my must-read list.
