The name Andúril refers to more than one character, item or concept. For a list of other meanings, see Andúril (disambiguation).

Andúril, edited by John Martin, began as the second official bulletin of The Tolkien Society. It became an independent fanzine after issue 2 (although issue 3 was distributed to Tolkien Society members). It then became increasingly less Tolkienian in scope. Amon Hen (the first issue titled Henneth Annûn) replaced it as the Society's official bulletin.[1]

Issue page size changes from issue to issue (irregular). First three issues have subtitle: The bulletin of the Tolkien Society, while later issues have subtitle: Magazine of fantasy.

Nos. 0-7 in Marquette Hunnewell collection. Nos. 0-6 in The Tolkien Society archive.[2]
