Charles Noad is a retired computer programmer and sometime proofreader.

He read «The Lord of the Rings» in 1961 and has more or less stuck with it since.

There isn’t really terribly much beyond that to say, really,

and I doubt if the Plaza’s good readers would want a detailed life of Noad in any case.

Special thanks should also go to Nicholas Widdows who provided me with information to straighten out publication dates and number of the Fellowship of Middle Earth’s publications and to Charles Noad, whose A Chronology of Events relating to the Tolkien Society is invaluable for dating old British Tolkien fanzines.
