Tolkien, Race and Cultural History wins the 2010 Mythopoeic Scholarship Award for Inklings Studies!

I am absolutely delighted to have found out that my book, Tolkien, Race and Cultural History: From Fairies to Hobbits, has won the 2010 Mythopoeic Scholarship Award in Inklings Studies! The winners of this year’s awards were announced today at Mythcon 41 in Dallas, Texas.

I am very honoured to join a long-established community of students of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams, and many other writers in the fantasy genre. Many of the books honoured by this very award during the last few years opened the way for further insights into Tolkien’s mythopoeia: my book wouldn’t have been possible without them!

Thanks for everyone who helped me along the way while writing this book, and while working on its previous incarnation as a PhD thesis!
