The Sociedad Tolkien Española (Spanish: "Spanish Tolkien Society"), or STE, is a Tolkien Society based in Spain.

[edit] History

The Society was founded in 1991 in Elche, in view of the coming Centenary, having the first official meeting on February 9th.[1] Its first chairman was José Manuel Ferrández Bru.[2] Although the Executive Committee and its seat is placed in a particular locality, there are many local delegations called "smials".

Estel is the official journal of the Society, published three-monthly. Four contests are announced every year, being the "Gandalf" Tale Contest the most known, which currently gathers a great collection of fan-fiction stories set in Middle-earth.
