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, 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 ''[http://mysite.verizon.net/wghammond/addenda/companion.html Addenda and Corrigenda to The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide (2006)]'').
