TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS), 1 page, dated 15 June 1985, to "Dear Kirby" [McCauley], signed "Bob." On rubber-stamped letter-size sheet with address 2111 Sunset Crest Drive, Los Angeles rubber-stamped at top. Deals with business matters in a straightforward businesslike manner. Mostly concerns an offer by a small press publisher to bring out a collection of Bloch's Lefty Feep stories. After criticizing the publisher's advance as too small, Bloch defers judgment to McCauley, then, in a postscript, suggests some marketing ideas that might benefit both the publisher and himself. Interesting for showing how attuned the author was to the selling end of his profession. Also alludes to an unspecified book by Thomas Monteleone which Bloch promises to read (for the purpose of developing a screen treatment or script from it?) Kirby McCauley was probably the most important literary agent of horror, fantasy and sf writers in the boom years of the 1970s and 1980s. Faint creases where folded for mailing, staple stabs at upper left corner, near fine. Good content. (#102301).

Price: $100.00
