When I reached the last page of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, I dove into the appendices. Anytime C.J. Cherryh includes notes at the end of a Foreigner adventure, I read them. If someone would create an atlas of Lois Bujold’s Chalion, I would buy it instantly!

When I enjoy a story, I often want to know more about its world.

These Lore pages of my website are for readers like me, who want to know more. I’ll continue to add to them as time goes by. Enjoy! 😀
