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).

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!

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 a sneaking suspicion that Beren is hot on its trail. Quote from the article:

"He has already had offers from a Tolkien enthusiast in Belgium..."

I know what you mean that it is quiet here and elsewhere, but I've been so swamped at work that I haven't had time to post new content here lately. Much to come though!

Non-Tolkien related: I hate myself on video, and I say "um" way too much (the boss threw me in front of the camera with no warning or prep), but if you really want to see my ugly mug...
