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:

I have sent about three emails to Unquendor to ask and write my name as 'Pieter' but they always seem to get it wrong and don't seem to answer my emails either...

see a bit later today on my website...

but don't believe all the media claims! OK I am interested in the fireplace, but never uttered any such amount... still you will be surprised since I will be selling some great stuff at my site in a short while ;)
