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)).

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..."
