  • "Archie Mercer, a long-time fan from Cornwall, became British agent for the Tolkien Society of America and Niekas and also enjoyed his role. He put out a newsletter for British members, THE MIDDLE-EARTHWORM. Since he was also a great enthusiast of White's retelling of the Arthurian story he later changed the name to The Once and Future Worm." (Ed Meskys, The View From Entropy Hall #12)
