Message from Amy Sturgis


I can't imagine the last ten years without TORn. You've welcomed us, informed us, and entertained us, and in the process forged a community that crosses all possible boundaries, uniting seasoned fans and newbies alike, showing us the common Tolkienian ground we share.

TORn has been the place I sent my students -- those few who did not already make it a daily visit -- and my own first stop for news and updates. I've appreciated the times you've called on me for interviews or featured news about my scholarship, speaking engagements, and classes. It's been a pleasure to make memories with the TORn staff, whether they are of sparring soldiers on horseback in Toronto at the Gathering of the Fellowship or singing Hobbits in Pasadena at ORC.

The great news is that TORn has just hit its stride. More movies are in the making. More events are planned. More books are underway -- in fact, I recently signed a contract to write a new work of my own on Tolkien, and I look forward to sharing news and updates with TORn -- and more Tolkien fans are yet to be made. Despite the great ten years you've given us, I have no doubt that the best is yet to come. Like fine wine, TORn is aging well.

So thank you, my friends, both for all you've accomplished and all you will do. I look forward to spending the next decade with you. Well done, indeed! Congratulations!

Amy H. Sturgis
