I think it is scary the way the press has run with the story. Here is a National Ledger article claiming that Malton said the postcard was worth $250,000 - which I never saw from the original article(s).

http://www.nationalledger.com/artman/ ... h/article_272621470.shtml

Plus the fact that the postcard is available for purchase through TolkienLibrary.com for less than $2000. Go check it out, and the garden artwork.

Andy Robertson from Interzone mentions that the "essay was offered by Mr Wolfe to the anthology Meditations on Middle-Earth, edited by Karen Haber, but was rejected."

Perhaps that is what you are thinking of? I don't have the Interzone edition, so if there is more information in that article I would like to know!

IIRC it was printed somewhere before Interzone - I'll dig out my Interzone copy and see what it says.

I agree... the handwriting does not even match Lin Carter's handwriting at all. The claim was made by the man who found the postcard. I have requested higher resolution images, but before I received anything the claim was already made...
