Beyond Bree

is the newsletter

of the Tolkien

Special Interest Group

of American Mensa

(Mensa is a high-IQ society).

Subscriptions are open to

all lovers of Tolkien’s Middle-earth,

Mensan and non-Mensan alike.

Back issues are available.


First published: March 1981.


Beyond Bree is published once a month.

A typical issue is 12 pages long, contains short articles on J.R.R. Tolkien and his works;
reviews of books, games, films, events by, about, or inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien and his works;
and general fantasy which might be of interest to the Tolkien fan.

Also readers’ views; fan publications, news, art, occasional poetry and puzzles.

We seldom publish fiction.

Since we are too widely scattered to meet in person,
Beyond Bree carries news of conventions and gatherings
where the Tolkien fan might find others of similar interests.

And, if readers have questions about Tolkien or his works, we try to answer them.
