That is to say, my appointment coincides with the newsletter’s move to an electronic-only format (excepting libraries, which will still receive it on paper). With the change in format will come other exciting changes. Now that the newsletter is no longer constrained to such austere limits on its length, format, size, and so on, many things become possible. For one thing, I hope to introduce more color into Mythprint. Also, while continuing our long and respected tradition of publishing book reviews, I hope to introduce (or in some cases revive) many other kinds of publications as well — news items and announcements, short notes and queries, interviews, calls for papers, and more.
So let me encourage anyone reading this post to consider contributing to Mythprint. Please drop me a line if you’d like to contribute artwork, book reviews, short essays, or news and announcements. If you are a publisher, an author, or know one, we accept copies of new books for review — providing they are fantasy, science-fiction, or scholarly treatments of the same. Contact me if you have any questions or need a mailing address.
And finally, let me encourage you to join the Mythopoeic Society, if you are not already a member. You can do this from anywhere in the world. And now that Mythprint is an electronic publication, it is more affordable than ever to join the Society, and thereby, to aid its mission of the promotion and appreciation of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and their milieu — as well as fantasy and science-fiction literature more generally. You can become a member, with a subscription to Mythprint delivered right to your email inbox, for only $12 USD per year. That, my friends, is hard to beat!
