Two cheers for the new Tolkien Encyclopedia!

Not three, b/c as Mike Drout relates, plenty of disappointments surround it. Nevertheless, it exists, and there is moderate rejoicing. It sounds like a worthy tome either way, but when you know the great height something could have been, it's adequacy often doesn't seem adequate. Regardless: thank you, Mike, for your hard work on what I'm sure is still an awesome accomplishment.

I have been keeping a diary of my thoughts on the J. R. R. Tolkien Encyclopedia as I read the articles. I welcome contributions from anyone who has it and wants to record their impressions of the various articles.
