Every March 25th, J. R. R. Tolkien fans around the world honor the renowned creator for "Tolkien Reading Day," a day set aside for reading and sharing their favorite passage from one of his stories.  This year, Fanbase Press Contributor Claire Thorne shared her passion for Tolkien's stories in the below editorial.  We invite you to join Claire and the Fanbase Press team in commemorating the geeky holiday by sharing your favorite excerpts in the comments below. 

Jane Stitch doesn’t know who she is. This isn’t the result of some variety of amnesia or a run-of-the-mill case of existential angst.

She is literally made up of half a dozen different women, and these women are starting to encroach on what peace of mind Jane has been able to find.

In Don’t Go Without Me, cartoonist Rosemary Valero-O’Connell brings us three tales about the fragility of existence, memory, and intimate connection.

The opening sentence of Noisemakers: 25 Women Who Raised Their Voices and Changed the World invites the reader to “take a deep breath, open your mouth, and say your name.” Say it louder, repeat it. When you say your name out loud, know that you are a Noisemaker just like the Noisemakers you are going to discover in the pages ahead.

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we often find ourselves becoming more introspective, reflecting on the people and things for which we are thankful. As we at Fanbase Press celebrate fandoms, this year, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors have chosen to honor their favorite fandoms, characters, or other elements of geekdom for which they are thankful, and how those areas of geekiness have shaped their lives and values.

As Halloween is fast approaching, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors decided that there was no better way to celebrate this horrifically haunting holiday than by sharing our favorite scary stories! Be they movies, TV shows, video games, novels, or any other form of entertainment, members of the Fanbase Press crew will be sharing their “scariest” stories each day leading up to Halloween. We hope that you will enjoy this sneak peek into the terrors that frighten Fanbase Press!
