This page is devoted to an old hobby of mine: Tolkien. I am one of those fans who has read Lord of the Rings and usually The Hobbit annually, for the last twenty-five years or so. In the last decade I've added Silmarillion to the tradition. My recent, belated discovery of many of Tolkien's other postumously-published writings (thanks, Mom) and the recent films have inspired me to delve still deeper into Tolkien's world. My interests lie in three areas: the history and stories of Middle Earth, the Jackson films, and the languages which Tolkien invented using all his knowledge as a linguistic scholar.
