Henry Gee, the author of The Science of Middle-earth (which began life here on Green Books) has taken over the editor's chair at Mallorn, the Journal of the Tolkien Society. Mallorn is usually published annually and takes reviews, fiction, criticism and artwork of interest to Tolkien aficionadoes. But Henry wants to ramp up the journal's visibility, with a new design, more frequent publication and a change of focus. "Tom Shippey wrote that Tolkien was the Author of the (20th) Century", says Henry. "But that was then, and Mallorn will be there to chart Tolkien's evolving influence into the 21st".
