I've been a reader and fan of the Middle-earth Legendarium for the past 18 years or so. I started with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, worked my way through The Silmarillion a few years later, and got my hands on Unfinished Tales after that. I tried my hand at writing a little Middle-earth inspired poetry and fanfiction, but found myself limited in my knowledge of what was available. I subsequently discovered the History of Middle-earth and have, to date, read Volumes X and XII (Morgoth's Ring and The Peoples of Middle-earth), as well as The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien. I've been enjoying reading and researching Tolkien's previously unpublished material, and plan on purchasing the other volumes of the HoME when I can.
I'd like to contribute what I can to this wiki, hopefully improve its content, and learn more about the Legendarium. I've got little experience working on wikis, but I'm happy to learn.
