Welcome to the New Site!

A brand new chapter in the tolkienprofessor.com‘s history is opening in front of you, dear visitors!

With the help of Mythgard Institute, my recently-launched school for the study of Tolkien and related works, I have just completed a complete redesign of the Tolkien Professor website.  I think you’ll love it, but let me give you the tour!

To start, content will now be easier to find than ever before with spaces for featuring new materials as well as old favorites.  There will also be more opportunities to share exclusive content, especially as the three-fold happenings of the 75th anniversary of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, the publication of my Exploring The Hobbit book and the premiere of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit film. An exciting 2012 for Tolkien fans, no doubt!

So poke around, have a look at the new tolkienprofessor.com and get comfy – and definitely stay tuned for more updates, announcements and much, much more!
