The Mythgard Academy fundraising campaign will come to a close this Saturday with a live webathon.

The Tolkien Society is looking for volunteers to help catalogue its collection of printed ephemera in the its Surrey-based archives.

A new edition of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, featuring previously hard-to-find and unpublished material, has been published today.

In an interview with The Guardian, the Canadian fantasy author Guy Gavriel Kay has talked about what it was like to help Christopher Tolkien edit The Silmarillion during 1974-1975.

Next Sunday (26 October) morning, BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship programme will broadcast a service live from Merton College Chapel, Oxford which will commemorate “the life and spirituality” of Tolkien in the context of his experience of the First World War.

Today marks 100 years since Middle-earth first came into being. On 24 September 1914, Tolkien wrote the poem ‘The Voyage of Éarendel the Evening Star’. It was, as Christopher Tolkien described it, “the first of the mythology”.
