Next to the official Tolkien Societies there are a huge amount of Tolkien communities who are doing fantastic and wonderfull work.
They are only present on the internet and have a very international audiance and public. Down here i mention some of the more serious and interesting Tolkien Communities. (Once again, if you feel like i missed some important community i am very willing to have a look at it and maybe put it down here).
The Mythopoeic Society International organization devoted to mythic literature, including the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams and other Inklings.
The Tolkien books i own, mostly come from these stores:
Thornton's Bookshop - A long-time dealer in Tolkien books, some rare and usual titles can be found here.
The Publishers of Tolkien books do their very best to maintain their own Tolkien pages:
- The dedicated Tolkien site of HarperCollins, Tolkien's UK and Worldwide publishers.
Del Rey Books publish Tolkien in paperback format in the USA.
The dedicated Tolkien pages of Houghton Mifflin (HMCO) Tolkien's USA hardback publisher. Lots of useful information about USA editions, including the History of Middle-earth books.
