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A new edition of The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, featuring previously hard-to-find and unpublished material, has been published today.

We met up with John Garth, author of Tolkien and the Great War and the newly published Tolkien at Exeter College, at Oxonmoot to talk about his work and the upcoming centenary of Middle-earth next Wednesday.

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”.

Exeter College, Oxford, has published a new booklet about Tolkien’s undergraduate life. Written by Tolkien and the Great War author John Garth, it also explores how Tolkien first created Middle-earth 100 years ago in 1914-15.
