No Saturday Links this week but a new article by me in Atlas Obscura on the curious connection between Tolkien and Italian neo-fascism. I think in the end I probably overstated Evola's influence on the Traditionalist movement, but the parallels between Evola and Tolkien are notable. Read the article here and, if you want to go deeper, you can read my research notes here.

I've been writing a bit on here about Traditionalism, the far right, and imaginative history, so if you're interested, here are those posts again.
