TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 page, dated 4 October 1978, to "Dear Kirby [McCauley], signed "Avram." On plain letter-size paper with return address (c/o Ekstrom, Sausalito, Calif.) typed at top. Cover letter for "a little weirdy called DR BHUMBO SINGH (not present). It may give the impression of being Fantasy but is actually SF. I've typed and re-typed it and it still comes out rayther [sic] mussy." Suggests a couple of possible markets for it, and the desirability of quick payment. Adds one or two other remarks and signs off, "Tra la la, and Happy Days!" The tone of this and his other letters reflects that jaunty mix of self-deprecation and self-confidence that characterized so much post-World War II American fantasy writing. Kirby McCauley was probably the most important literary agent of horror, fantasy and sf writers in the boom years of the 1970s and 1980s. Some minor creasing and wrinkling, very good. (#102321).
