"Spearwielder" is the etymological meaning of "Gerald". It's not supposed to indicate that I'm combative—my last name is quite peaceful. I live in New Mexico, U.S.A.

Despite or because of my great enjoyment of The Lord of the Rings since about 1972, I'm here mostly to contribute to "Mistakes and inconsistencies in Tolkien's works".
