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...

The claim that the postcard is from Lin Carter seems unlikely - how would he know Tolkien was at the Miramar? The postcard is not addressed to England, just Bournemouth. And the printer 'J Arthur Dixon' is a British company not American. The tone of the note suggests a friend rather than a fan or admirer.

Noted fantasy author Gene Wolfe wrote a tribute essay about J. R. R. Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings which I quite enjoyed reading. It was first published in 2001 in the magazine Interzone, and was reprinted with permission on the following website:
