    1. You're not alone, it seems (see previous comment). There is a nice stamp of Maya Angelou recently issued by USPS.

  3. I think I would have loved a postcard written from Enid Blyton or Eric Linklater as a child. Receiving a postcard of a Terry Pratchett quote would be something I'd like now - it's still hard to think he's gone from this world :( Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    1. A Enid Blyton postcard would have made my day, too. I received recently a postcard with Terry Prachett books (in Czech!).

  5. Jane Austen gets an awful lot of publicity - stamps, coins and bank notes and now this postcard. I've lost count of the times that adaptations of her books have appeared on TV.

    1. I am not sure if I have seen any of those TV adaptations. But at least I have read all her books! The first books I ever read on an e-reader were the complete works of this author.

  6. I would choose Ursula K. Le Guin for a postcard from a living author, Frank Herbert and Philip K. Dick from the deceased.

    1. I have two friends very fond of Austen books (as myself), and they send me postcards from time to time. That's great!

    1. I think I've seen those. But I'm not always sure that the quotes are true, or just attributed to him.

  14. I wish Miss Jane thought a little more highly of herself!

    You know, now that you ask, my mind goes completely blank on who I'd like to receive a postcard from! lol I hate when that happens! I do have a book autographed by Brad Thor, if that counts. :)

      I received once a letter from an author (Amélie Nothomb) and I was over the moon.

  15. I have no idea which author I would most like to receive a postcard from. There are too many to choose from.

  16. I think I'd like to receive a Shakespeare postcard. I grew up quite close to the area he was, so it would be a little reminder of home. :)
