I thought I was being both original and clever with this title, to misquote Frodo in the “Conspiracy Unmasked” chapter of Fellowship of the Ring. Alas, it turns out I have been clever, but not original.
Behold: Mythprint, the monthly newsletter of the Mythopoeic Society. As active as I’ve been among Tolkien-enthusiasts over the years, I really ought to have known. It may be a case of cryptoamnesia. (For example: C.S. Lewis has Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum travel through “Ettinsmoor” in The Silver Chair, probably an unconscious recollection of Ettenmoors in the northern area of Tolkien’s Middle-earth.)
I can’t keep the name of a well-known publication, especially one that is the mouthpiece of an organization I respect, a vessel embarked on the same seas as this blog! So out of courtesy I need to change my blog title, and more importantly, its domain name. So please check back here in about a week to find out the new URL. I’ll leave the old domain up for a while to redirect people to the new web address.
Right now I’m brainstorming: Mythpress, Mythperception, MythFile, Myth-log. I’m leaning towards Mythpress, but I have a fondness for puns, so I wish I could think of something a little more snappy.
