Just wanted to give a heads up on a quite obscure magazine (at least for us non-Americans!): Fantastic: Sword & Sorcery and Fantasy Stories November 1976 (Vol. 25, No. 5). My copy arrived today, and it can be found for what I regard as decent prices at Amazon.com (currently it seems like no copies are listed on eBay):

http://www.amazon.com/Fantastic-Sorce ... TF8&qid=1328011809&sr=8-3

It includes the article "White Wizard in Tweeds" by L. Sprague de Camp, upon which he based the chapter "Merlin in Tweeds: J.R.R. Tolken" included in his Literary Swordsmen and Sorcerers.

As in the book chapter, the article in Fantastic provides a few quotes attributed to Tolkien.

And in case you already have de Camp's Swords and Sorcery (Beren seems to have sold his signed copy!), you might also want to get it for pure aesthetic concern - they make a nice pair on the bookshelf, having a similar yellow letters on a black background!

no it is back again... http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/dmiller/000971.htm by the way... I have been trying for hours and hours to transcribe this, but it is the hardest piece of Tolkien scribbles I have seen EVER... maybe we could set up a project here and try with many people to get this done?

If you could send me (Carl Hostetter) a clean scan I'm pretty sure I could transcribe most if not all of it. (I've seen, and transcribed, worse from Tolkien's pen!)
