The reasons for Ringers to come to Atlanta the first weekend of June keep multiplying. Being a sponsor of TheOneParty was not only fun for mega-conference and performance fest Mythic Journeys, but managed to attract one more exciting guest-“Last Unicorn” author Peter S. Beagle—who heard about us during the party. Alan Lee, Virginia Lee and renowned Tolkien scholar Verlyn Flieger are confirmed, as well as many top fantasy authors and artists such as Brian Froud, Charles Vess, Charles de Lint, Guy Gavriel Kay, Terri Windling.

Then there’s Emerald Rose performing and LOTR game designer Daniel Greenberg. Plus, Howard Shore will be conducting “The Lord of the Rings Symphony” the same weekend with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. They’d also like to offer all OneRing readers a special $25 discount on memberships.

Register online at and enter the word MERLIN in the “Other” block under “How did you hear about the Mythic Journeys conference?” to receive your discount. PLEASE NOTE: the discount will be reflected in your confirmation email, NOT in the Web browser.
