Welcome to Eldorion.com!

Welcome!  This site is devoted to my various hobbies, especially reading, thinking, and writing about the Middle-earth stories of J. R. R. Tolkien.   Since first reading The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings I have been captivated by Tolkien’s world.  This site began as a repository for essays I had written as a result of interacting with other Tolkien fans in online forums, principally on the subject of purism.  Over time it grew to include other topics as well, including my take on the famous Eagle question, which statistically speaking is probably how you found this site.

I hope that you will find something that interests or entertains you here.  If you are a Tolkien fan, you might be interested in the discussion of adapting Tolkien’s stories, or in more in-depth considerations of his work.  This site is also the home to a handful of movie reviews and miscellaneous essays, some of a more personal nature.  Everything is easily accessible from the links at the top of each page.  Feel free to let me know what you think about the site, or just say hi.  I can also be found on Forumshire: The Hobbit Movie Forum most of the time, posting under this same name.

Enjoy the site!
