From: "William H. Graham III" <William.H.Graham.III@cdc.com> Subject: (urth) Re: Collectibles Date: Fri, 31 Oct 1997 09:31:58 [Posted from URTH, a mailing list about Gene Wolfe's New Sun and other works] I while ago I contacted Ms. Kidd and agreed to buy reprint rights for the <<Wonders of Urth and Sky>> stories ("The Boy Who Hooked the Sun" et al) for the purposes of printing a fanzine. Now that project has gone belly-up as my would-be-financial-backer went and did something silly like buy a house, but out of all that, I have a very nice letter from Mr Wolfe regarding my request for introductions to the stories. The fountain pen cranberry-inked signature is striking. If anyone could ever be excited about something linked with a failure, this is it for me! Incidentally, my brief correspondance with Ms. Kidd gave me to believe that she is one of the classiest people I've met. Her letters, as well as Mr. Wolfe's, are the crown of my collection. Could someone please tell me again of Mr. Wolfe's engagement in Baltimore next year? -WHG3 PS Easton Press had 8 copies of "Shadow" as of Thursday. Get em while they're hot! -- "Spelling mistakes?
