He is the author of numerous articles on Tolkienian linguistics, and the editor of two journals on the subject, Vinyar Tengwar (print) and Tengwestië (online).

Wynne (called by some the "Elfconners"), he has been engaged by Christopher Tolkien in the ordering, editing, and publishing of J.R.R.

[edit] Quotes

"I didn't start the E.L.F., I didn't launch VT, I don't edit Parma, and I'm not the chief editor of Tolkien's linguistic papers; I just do my part. Mostly, I'm just the one tenacious/stupid enough to act as a human target for the team, and for the fullness and reality of Tolkien's linguistic inventions."
― Carl F. Hostetter, Elfling-d message 686
