Post Round-up and Blog Debut!
Whenever I post on sites outside my journal, I periodically link to those posts here. I haven't rounded anything up in a while because there hasn't been anything to round up! But, as a personal reward for finishing my American Fiction course, I've allowed myself to make my first blog post to my shiny new blog.
The Heretic Loremaster
Tolkien, Allegory, and the Maddening Perseverance of Denial. The first in a series looking at allegory (or the lack thereof) in Tolkien's works and the fan response to it.
This is my blog's debut. My website, www.themidhavens.net, is still under construction. I've tested the blog in the most recent versions of Firefox and IE and in that bane of my existence, IE 6.0. However, I appreciate, if anyone sees anything that looks off or doesn't work as it should, that she or he lets me know.
I normally don't allow comments on round-ups, but I'll leave them open for this post, so feel free to let me know here if anything is awry.
Also, note that I'm looking for other people to write for this blog, either as regular or guest contributors. The subject need not be Tolkien. Literature, book-based fandoms, and history are all fair game. I'd particularly like someone to write about Harry Potter. If you think you might be interested, please drop me an email at the usual place.
