Carl F. Hostetter (August 6, 1965) is a key figure of the Elvish Linguistic Fellowship. 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). Hostetter has also contributed to various mailing-lists dedicated to Tolkien's languages, including Tolklang and Elfling. After a (still ongoing) dispute with David Salo and Helge Kåre Fauskanger, he set up Lambengolmor and Elfling-d. Together with Christopher Gilson, Arden R. Smith, Bill Welden, and Patrick H. Wynne (called by some the "Elfconners"), he has been engaged by Christopher Tolkien in the ordering, editing, and publishing of J.R.R. Tolkien's writings concerning his invented languages, which have been published as Parma Eldalamberon numbers 11 through 17 (and continuing) and in Vinyar Tengwar.

Together with Verlyn Flieger, he is the editor of Tolkien's Legendarium

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."
