Wellinghall,
I often think this was a genuine "Khamul, For heaven's sake what a pendant" moment...

I have edited my earlier post to include the fact that their are at least two fake letters in existence.

If you were to accept that the letters are real (by ignoring all the evidence) then why would Tolkien sign both copies, he would only send one to Pauline.

Khamul,

Yes, it is true. One an the same. I thought a name change was a long time comin', I'm not particularly good at coming up with names for myself and was never very happy with the former. We'll see how Elwë works out. I imagine it will go quite well, until I become consumed by my lust for a Silmaril, and ultimately ensnared by the doom of Feanor! (We'll focus on the good times, for now though.)

Regards,
Steve (my real name )


I think Khamul is already consumed by a lust for a Silmarillion, and ultimately ensnared by the doom of Feanor in collecting Silmarillions

Michael tends to write in his book the name of who gave it to him (in the MHRT book that I have, he wrote it was from Daddy), so I think he did the monogram and it represents Christopher.

The thing that gave it away for me was that Tolkien had not signed the map and the postcards as well, schoolboy error.

I know that Tolkien owned a Morris car in his early life, but we have conclusive proof that he also owned one of these (to get to the year 2000 for book signings).

Open in new window
