==About Me==
Hello, my name is Dillon. I have a great interest in Tolkien's works and the world of Middle-earth. Like many I was introduced to ''The Lord of the Rings'' through Peter Jackson's films, but I prefer the books for their detail and greater focus on the world over individual battles, among other reasons. I have read ''The Silmarillion'', and I'm currently rereading ''The Hobbit'' (2018). I wish to read ''Unfinished Tales'' eventually, as well as the various other works published by Christopher Tolkien.

About Me

Hello, my name is Dillon. I have a great interest in Tolkien's works and the world of Middle-earth. Like many I was introduced to The Lord of the Rings through Peter Jackson's films, but I prefer the books for their detail and greater focus on the world over individual battles, among other reasons. I have read The Hobbit and The Silmarillion too. I wish to read Unfinished Tales eventually, as well as the various other works published by Christopher Tolkien.

Apart from Tolkien, I like The Elder Scrolls series of video games and the associated lore behind them. I am an active patroller on UESPWiki, the Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages. I also have an account on Wikipedia. My favorite academic subjects are Mathematics and Computer Science, and I know Java and Python fairly well.
