I haven't given any other journal issue an entry to itself. However, since this one contains so many articles on romance (which are listed separately), I thought it might be helpful to also give it its own listing, where I could include hyperlinks to those individual entries.

Seidel, Kathleen Giles, "Half-Risen Venus" on pages 250-252, which is a review of Grescoe's Merchants of Venus (and I've included some quotes from it on the page for that book).

Spehner, Norbert, "L'Amour, toujours l'amour... The Popular Love Story and Romance: A Basic Checklist of Secondary Sources" on pages 253-268. [I've checked it to ensure that all the academic items included in this which are about popular romance novels are also in this database but I've excluded quite a few items mentioned by Norbert which are not academic e.g. guides to writing romance, articles in the media. He also includes academic items which are about romantic fiction more broadly and I've omitted those too.]

In a section titled "Related Articles"

Ellrich, Robert J. "Prolegomenon or, Preliminary musings to make the gentle reader think, or fume, or snort. In which we modestly propose to deal with the origin, history, nature, and meaning of the Romance" on pages 269-285. This is about "romance" in the broadest sense, so is about medieval romance but also work by Mary Shelley (for example) and how the romance might also include realist fictions such as Jane Austen's. I only skimmed it (so admittedly I may have missed something) but I couldn't see anything about modern popular romance fiction.

Lewes, Darby, "[C]loathing Womanhood: Two Role-Reversal Utopias by Nineteenth-Century Women" on pages 286-303. This is about Man's Rights; or, How Would You Like It? (1870) by Annie Denton Cridge and Mrs J. Wood's Pantaletta, a Romance of Sheheland (1882).
