From Tolkien Gateway

About Me[edit | edit source]

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, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and The Children of Húrin too. Eventually, I want to read the entirety of The History of Middle-earth along with Beren and Lúthien and The Fall of Gondolin, though the last two might be redundant at that point.

Apart from Tolkien, I like the Elder Scrolls series of video games and the associated lore behind them. I am an active administrator 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.
