New Features: Updates and Improvements
Have you ever thought about the many ways in which you can enjoy and explore Middle-earth?
You can experience Middle-earth in many different ways:
- you can watch the movies (the short or the extended version)
- you can read the books ("The Lord of the Rings")
- you can read more books: "The Hobbit" and "The Silmarillion" (Or even more books: the tantalizing background material collected in "Unfinished Tales" and the series "History of Middle-earth"…)
- or you can enter fandom and live Middle-earth: reading and maybe even writing, fan fiction, role playing, admiring or creating fan art…
There are many levels on which you can experience Middle-earth.
Just as there are many levels of experiencing the Henneth Annûn Story Archive:
HASA is more than just another archive!
You can experience HASA in many different ways:
- you can visit the Public Archive –
to discover new reviewed stories and published challenges every time. And now you can also read Story Comments there!

- you can become a member of the Writers Workshop (even if you don't write at the moment!) –
as a member of the Writers Workshop you can see all the stories at HASA, even those that are still in "beta" (not yet completely edited/finished). But more than that, you have access to many useful writing tools and other amazing workshop features (such special collaborative workshops, user forums and a large "Resources" section to name but a few) that make writing Tolkien fan fiction a lot easier and more fun!
Just as there are many ways to enjoy Middle-earth, there are many ways to enjoy HASA.
Now the only question is:
Which level of HASA do you want to experience today? You can start with Readers Club and upgrade to Writers Workshop at any time. All levels of HASA membership are free.
