In 1980, when VII was founded, scholars were releasing a handful of books every year primarily about Lewis and Tolkien. Forty years later, a new generation of scholars are publishing numerous works of excellent and well-researched literature not just about Lewis and Tolkien but increasingly on authors like Sayers, MacDonald, Chesterton, Barfield, and Williams as well. In order to stay abreast of the latest book releases, VII is delighted to announce our digital-only Volume 36.2. Beginning this year, VII will now publish timely book reviews, review essays, and book notes midway between our main issues. We anticipate that this high-quality, free content will aid our readers and help them stay better informed about the state of scholarship on the seven Wade authors.
