Index:Writings by J.R.R. Tolkien

From Tolkien Gateway

This is an attempt to list all published writings (including juvenilia, letters, transcribed interviews and statements, etc.) of J.R.R. Tolkien appearing in books, periodicals, ephemera and online, in a chronological order of publication.[1] For a list of his major books, see the bibliography section on the J.R.R. Tolkien page.

  • Note 1: For ease of reference (and because many items do not have an exact date of publication), works are sorted alphabetically under each year.
  • Note 2: The list does not (in general) include reprints or new editions without new content.
  • Note 3: Publications, with only a vague contribution by Tolkien, or which are questionable, disputed, or with an unknown publication status or similiar, are enclosed with parentheses.
  • Note 4: Non-English publications are only listed if these contain material published for the first time.
