The American Tolkien Society

is dedicated exclusively

to the study and fuller appreciation

of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien

and his son, Christopher J.R. Tolkien.

Through our programs,

we strive to bring into contact

the followers and connoisseurs of these works.

We publish an online journal on this website,

Minas Tirith Evening-Star,

to provide a meeting ground for the exchange of ideas

and joy generated by Tolkien’s monumental works.

Our journal includes the best in articles, poetry, fiction

and a selection of reviews, games and features.

The Society was organized in 1975;

our journal began publication independently in 1967

and is currently marking its fiftieth anniversary.
