Fanzines, Newsletters, Journals

An introduction to the early days of Tolkien fanzines can be found here: An Early Tolkien Fanzine History. If you are looking for a comprehensive list of publications, use the sidebars on the right to navigate through a full alphabetical listing. As you browse or search through this guide, you will run across entries that mention being in the Marquette collection, The Tolkien Society archives, or other archives. All of these facilities are open to the public for research purposes, though you may only be able to access microfilm copies and not the originals. This guide is making every attempt to stay current with the major library archives, but it would never hurt to search their archives directly.
