A propos de cet article

Largely devoted to business matters, including payment for German translations of his work and fluctuating exchange rates between the pound and the Deutsche mark. He complains at some length about not getting royalty money from Jove Books. "What in hell is wrong with Jove? Surely they have to honour the contract? Mutter, snarl, grumble, twitch, yelp, - whimper ? [last word underlined]." Mentions submitting a story to Ramsey Campbell for an anthology, "which he promptly turned down! Says it is too much like something by Harlan Ellison." Written with his characteristic tone of breezy good humor. Lumley, who started his career (like so many others) as a Lovecraft disciple, has been a prolific author of supernatural horror (of which his occult/Cold War Necroscope series is his best and best-known work), even while he was serving, as at this time, in the Royal Military Police. 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, a bit of light creasing elsewhere, near fine. (#102653). N° de réf. du libraire 102653
