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.
