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.

A group of Tolkien Society members triumphed at last weekend’s Worldcon Masquerade, winning Best Workmanship, Best Presentation and Best In Show in the Masters’ category. Congratulations! The entry, entitled Aratalindalë, was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion.

Tolkien Society Chairman, Shaun Gunner, has been interviewed by TheOneRing.net (TORn).

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.

Tolkien and the Study of His Sources: Critical Essays, edited by Jason Fisher, has received the 2014 Mythopoeic Scholarship Award in Inklings Studies.

Enrolment has opened for two online classes taught by Dr Dimitra Fimi, the first of which will start this September.
