Volume 14, Number 1 (Issue 27, July 2014) of The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies, published by Pennsylvania State University Press, is the current issue, featuring provocative new essays on Ayn Rand and fairy tales, the problem with "selfishness," preference formation, and reviews of two recent books based on lectures given before the Ayn Rand Society.  The issue concludes with a symposium on Robert L. Cambpell's review of two recent biographical-historical studies of Rand, and features replies by Jennifer Burns (author of Goddess of the Market: Ayn Rand and the American Right), Mimi Reisel Gladstein (author of countless books and articles on Rand), and Anne Conover Heller (author of Ayn Rand and the World She Made).  It concludes with a rejoinder from Campbell.

This issue also marks the passing of two figures who made important contributions to Ayn Rand studies:  Allan Gotthelf and Barbara Branden, and includes a bibliography of Branden's work compiled by Roger E. Bissell.  Read excerpts from Chris Matthew Sciabarra's introduction on "Life, Death, Renewal" here.
