News, Reviews, and Social Media

Because New Mexico is among the 'most locked-down' states, the Mythcon committee realized they couldn't actually move forward with plans for an in-person Mythopoeic Conference in 2021 because the rules and regulations under which they would be required to function aren't yet known, making it an impossibility. The good news is that our hotel in Albuquerque is giving us the same weekend in 2022 (the new dates are July 29 - August 1, 2022) and improved room rates! So Mythcon 51 has become Mythcon 52 and we are having a Virtual Halfling Mythcon on July 31 - August 1, 2021.
Memberships in the original Mythcon 51 have been automatically transferred to Mythcon 52 (same conference, same GOHs, same location, same weekend, DIFFERENT year!) - if you cannot attend Mythcon 52 please request a refund of your membership. Thus everybody needs to register for Mythcon 51 at the flat rate of $20 per person. We also invite you to consider fun and creative ways to participate in this year's Virtual Halfling Mythcon
And finally, our LAST Mythopoeic Nostalgia Sale: As we experience ongoing Mythopoeic nostalgia, waiting for our twice-delayed in-person Mythcon, the Mythopoeic Press has announced one last Mythopoeic Nostalgia Sale, offering Tolkien on Film for 25% off (total $14.95, normally $19.95) when purchased through our website at our Mythopoeic Press page (http://mythsoc.org/press.htm).

Announcements ListWe encourage all members of the Mythopoeic Society to subscribe to our "news blog," the Horn of Rohan Redux, where this link will take you. There is no discussion or interaction, just updates and information posted from time to time. It is the fastest way for us to get the word out to Society members but you must sign up for it to work.
We have put an unformatted archive of the retired MythAnn ("Mythopoeic Announcements") group here, for historic purposes.
Social MediaMany Mythopoeic Society members are active on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, a MythSoc Discussion Group (now hosted at Groups.io), and the Society has a presence on various social media sites; we invite you to "like" us or "follow" us or, in the case of the Facebook MythSoc group, ask to join - but please remember, being a part of the general-interest group on Facebook doesn't make you a member of the Mythopoeic Society - you must join the Society in order to actually be a member of the Society!
The Mythopoeic Society now has a MythSoc YouTube channel.
You can also connect with many of your fellow mythies via Goodreads, for instance, the Mythcon 43 Reading Group, or see some Mythopoeic photos in the MythSoc group on Flickr.
You can also help the Society fund its activities, including the “Starving Scholars Fund”, formally renamed the Glen GoodKnight Memorial Scholarship Fund, when you shop at Amazon, by following a link from our website.
