TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 page, dated 12 May 1979, to "Dear Mr. [Malcolm] Edwards," signed, "Quinn." On Yarbro's Albany, California letterhead. Yarbro accepts an invitation to conduct an interview with her fellow San Francisco Bay Area fantasy writer Fritz Leiber at the upcoming World Science Fiction convention in Brighton, England, at which Leiber would be the American Guest of Honor. Yarbro asks Edwards for some guidance on what kind of questions to feed Leiber; or, if he'd prefer, she will consult with Leiber. In passing, she suggests that they use each other's first names. She mentions that she has programmed three conventions herself and, "You're either very brave or very foolhardy, but either way, you have my whole-hearted respect for tackling such a job." Yarbro, a composer and professional Tarot card reader as well as an author of popular genre fiction, is best known for the series of vampire tales she began to write around the time of this letter, featuring the aristocratic vampire Saint-Germain (this being soon after another San Francisco writer, Anne Rice, presented her aristocratic vampires in INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE). Edwards is a British editor and critic with a long-standing involvement in science fiction fandom and publishing. Faint creases where folded for mailing, a bit of soling to verso, near fine. (#102762).
