aka ChW aka Walter. I am the host of this WikiWikiWeb.
I was born in the summer of 58, am married, and live with my family (including a son who has come of age, recently) in Austria. I'm an IT-consultant and software-developer.
I "stumbled" on my first Tolkien-book not very long ago (in the autumn of 2001; actually I became curious when my son had gotten it as a birthday-present) and was immediately disappointed. It was the German version of LotR and the translation was not at all to my liking.
So I went and bought me an English copy of The Hobbit and the LotR. I had not even finished reading the LotR when I ordered The Silmarillion...and then the Unfinished Tales...and then...well, I don't want to bore you, but man, this addiction came fast and caught me at unawares...
Well, meanwhile I had to free some bookshelves for Tolkien- and related books, my paycheck goes directly to Amazon each month and someday I will lose interest in Tolkien's work...maybe in 20 years...or 30...maybe...but then again... maybe not...

If you think that the lack of answer from the others may cause any problems, perhaps it should be best to delete those entries. --LR
