Robert Heinlein: 1957

Heinlein, Robert A[nson]. TWO TYPED LETTERS SIGNED (TLsS). Each 1 page, dated 25 March 1957 and 24 October 1957, both to Reginald Bretnor, both signed "Bob" and a Typed Post Card, dated 2 March 1957, to "Dear Mr. Bretnor," signed "Bob Heinlein," letters and post card on Heinlein's Colorado Springs, Colorado letterhead. The post card is most likely Heinlein's earliest direct contact with Bretnor. Heinlein expects to be in San Francisco in November and wishes to make Bretnor's acquaintance. "In a talk I recently made in Chicago I made extensive use of your symposium on science fiction and especially of your contribution. I acknowledged it at the time and the published version will also contain acknowledgment but I now want to thank you personally for your invaluable aid." The two letters discuss and firm up the San Francisco visit: "I am looking forward to meeting you at last - and also hope to find ways to meet others among our colleagues in the Bay Area ..." Both letters contain amusing remarks about cats. Faint mailing folds, else fine. The envelopes for the letters are present. (#96331)
