Subject(s)Request of interview

Letter 293 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

[edit] Summary

William Foster, a journalist for The Scotsman, had requested an interview. Tolkien prized The Scotsman, but stated that he could not give interviews due to time constraints. New interviews would be available when his next book came out.

[edit] Notes

  • An interview with Foster was published in The Scotsman of 25 March 1967, so apparently the Professor found time.
