The North East Tolkien Society, formerly known as the New York Tolkien Society, and also known as Heren Istarion, is/was the largest American Smial of The Tolkien Society. The main force behind Heren Istarion are co-chairs Anthony Burdge and his wife Jessica Burke. It is semi-dormant since 2009 due to hardship encountered by the co-chairs due to the great recession[1][2]. Consequently it's website[3] was downgraded to a blog[4] as well as a Facebook page[5].

History

The smial is located on Staten Island, New York. Heren Istarion published its own calendars in 2008[6], 2009[7], 2010[8] and 2011[9]. It is unclear whether a 2012 calendar will be printed and sold.

Aside from Heren Istarion New York City has a Meetup.com group: NYC Area Friends of J.R.R. Tolkien & Fantasy, that appears to be active as it meets monthly.

Magazine

Heren Istarion also published a magazine through 2008, Parma Nölé[10]. No issues were released in 2009, 2010 or 2011.
