TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1/2 page, dated 12 January 1985, to "Dear Kirby" [McCauley], signed "Karl." On Wagner's Carcosa Press letterhead. A cover letter for some copyright permission forms (not present) Wagner was sending McCauley in connection with ECHOES OF VALOR, an anthology he was editing for Tor Books. His effort to finish the anthology comes at the same time, he notes, that he is trying to finish a script for Dino de Laurentis for the never-produced third Conan movie. Wagner, who died at 49, is remembered both for his editorial work at Carcosa, bringing classic pulp material back into book form, and for his own fantasy and horror fiction. Quite wrinkled and creased, 52 mm closed tear in right edge margin, several small, faint stains, very good. (#102701).
