Hello! I'm Morgan, a musician and former sociology and philosophy student from Falkenberg, Sweden. My main areas of interest related to Tolkien are bibliography, the life-history of Tolkien, the legendarium of Middle-earth, linguistics, and published role-playing games set in Arda.

Outside Tolkien Gateway, I have foremostly contributed to the study of J.R.R. Tolkien by noting some minor details and errors in the excellent The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide (I'm very proud to be acknowledged by Hammond and Scull in their Addenda and Corrigenda to The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide (2006)).

Some favourite quotes

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."
Gandalf to Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring, "The Shadow of the Past" (noted by User:Mith)
"...there are Tolkien's latest thoughts, his best thoughts, and his published thoughts and these are not necessarily the same."
Tolkien's Legendarium: Essays on The History of Middle-earth (noted by User:Ælfwine)

On Fantasy literature:

"...were it not for [Jack] Vance I think I might have been one of those writers who examine the psychological nuances of their failed marriages. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but this way it's been so much more fun..."
― Lucius Shepard, "Sylgarmo's Proclamation"
