From the Mathomius: Since Middle-earth is located--to paraphrase Rod Serling's introduction to The Twilight Zone--'in another dimension, not of sight and sound, but of mind,' its artifacts are the products of the mind; words and names, rather than skeletons, pottery shards and flint tools. The literary baggage of each word and name in a language is built up out of all the usages of that word or name that a reader has ever been exposed to. Tolkien called this "the leaf mold" of one's mind (Carpenter 140-141). The purpose of this study is to offer the reader a glimpse into the literary baggage that I carry around for the words that make up Tolkien's Legendarium. Amon Hen (the September issue) says: "Highly recommendable."
