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.

For more information about the relation between Morris and Tolkien, I would recommend you to have a look in The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide - there's an entry in Reader's Guide for William Morris (pp. 598-604).

garm, Beorhtnoth is included in my cheap paperback copy of Tree and Leaf (HarperCollins 2001).

Thank you for the link, I'll make a vain attempt (although I guess I won't be the only one!).

Estimated price £80-100! That's absurdely low for a handwritten letter (if it's the same as the excerpt shown on Winterton's website). I would gladly have tried my luck on it, but it seems like you have to physically be there during the auction..?

Will anyone here be placing a bid?
