Yrch!

  • East Lansing, Michigan
  • Michigan State University (MSU) Tolkien Fellowship
  • Nos. 1-4,7,11,24 (1968-1970) in the Marquette Hunnewell collection
  • See also the UK Fanzine of the same name, Yrch!
  • Gary Hunnewell adds the following: "The MSU Tolkien Fellowship also published Holbytla and Dwimmerlaik (edited by Phillips), Quendi (edited by Dabney), and Chrysophylax (unseen). Members were prolific with their own fanzines: Hilton published Incanus (unseen); Anderson edited The Fandom Blot (unseen); Mike Wood published Operand (unseen); Brown published Magic Bagel and Cosmic Cruller (unseen); and, McEvoy published The Balrog Review (unseen). The issues are difficult to date; colophons stated that they were published two or three times per month. Catherine Madsen, once of the group, states "#11...must be from Fall 1970, not 1969, for two reasons: Leny Waber and I weren't officers until that point and the phone number given...is an off-campus one." This looks to be true even though issue number 24 was dated 1969 and stated that there were 23 previous issues. Yrch is Sindarin for ‘orc.’"
