And I knew it, I bloody well knew it!  The article confirms my suspicions that Tolkein biographer Joseph Pearce was THE Joe Pearce of the National Front in the early 80s.  In my younger days, I was heavily involved in Anti Racist Action and other anti-fascist groups and as a result, read alot of the "enemy's" propaganda (Know thy enemy, of course).  I knew I recognized alot of the same writing style in Pearce's Tolkein biography, but was never sure if it was the same guy.

Thank you for just that bit of information alone!

lol I love the response to the Nazi included in the article.  Made me laugh.
