The Encyclopedia of Arda - why?

An article from the Encyclopedia of Arda FAQ

The main reason behind The Encyclopedia of Arda is purely selfish - maintaining this site is simply fascinating, not to mention a good excuse to read and reread Tolkien's works from endlessly differing perspectives. Having said that, it's marvellous to hear that most visitors seem to enjoy the site as much as we enjoy putting it together. Special thanks are due to all those who have e-mailed us with their support - it really is appreciated.
