About this Item

5 typescript leaves (279 x 216 mm.); pages uniformly toned, paper clip rust marks to top left-hand corner; drop title in manuscript; typescript and manuscript annotations throughout; very good. A short essay on the work and tropes of the science fiction and horror author Henry Kuttner (1915-1958), whom Leiber first met by correspondence in 1937 through H.P. Lovecraft: "Hank [i.e. Kuttner] was already breaking sharply from the Lovecraft tradition. I recall him saying that he favored revelation (the surprise twist) rather than confirmation as the more effecting story ending. He also remarked that although he liked the story of mine he'd read, he had been unable to decide for several pages whether the protagonist/was a man or a cat.". Bookseller Inventory # 43889
