About This Site

First, let me make it very clear that this site was not my own idea; it was inspired by The J.R.R. Tolkien Information Page. Unfortunately, this wonderful website has not been updated since March of 1997. I hope to create something similar; a complete list of on-line (and some off-line) Tolkien resources, as well as similar, non-Tolkien websites that may interest Tolkien readers. These resources will include everything from personal fan pages to linguistics sites to information about the new Lord of the Rings movie. If you have any links you think should be added, or if you find a broken link, please do not hesitate to email me. I welcome any and all contributions. This site is best seen with Netscape; if you are using Internet Explorer some graphics may be cut off.
I have been an avid fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and his works for several years. In time, I hope to expand this site to include discussion boards and my own contributions to the growing on-line Tolkien community. This page should be updated frequently so bookmark it and check back soon. Thank you for visiting!
