Miruvor is a gen Tolkien newsletter of Taruithorn, the Oxford Tolkien Society. It contains poems, news, fiction and articles. The three terms at Oxford are chronologically Hilary (starts in January), Trinity (starts in March), and Michaelmas (starts in October) and that is how the newsletters are labeled. In 2011, the magazine was reincarnated as a blog, with occasional continuing printed issues. All issues are now available on the blog as PDFs.
