Heresy! A conlanger not a Tolkien fan? Unthinkable! :) >>

    I've tried to read The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring on two
non-consecutive occasions (Simpsons joke), and have failed at both.  I made a
serious attempt at the latter just this summer--could not do it!  I'd much
rather read Tom Robbins's new book.  :)  Anyway, I say it's okay to be a
non-Tolkiener on Conlang!  Stand with me, brethren; I know ye exist!
