  • About Yourself

  • First heard, more likely read the term "Lord of the Rings" in the 1970s, without any idea about content.
    Saw the Ralph Bakshi movie (which I now have on DVD) in 1983, read the German translation of LotR shortly after. Bought LotR original in 1985 latest, Hobbit, Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and Book of Lost Tales vols 1 and 2 shortly thereafter. The other ten books of the HoME followed. Books by, about and in honor of JRRT now number 50+, last acquisitions were Scull / Hammond “JRR Tolkien Companion and Guide” and “LotR – a Reader’s Companion”.
    Lived in the US 1966-1975 with my parents, Germany since then.
