Ray Russell (1924–1999), US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. 2 ms. Briefe mit e. U. Beverly Hills, 25. und 26. März 1985. (1+1=) 2 Seiten 4° und 8°. Jeweils mit ms. adr. Kuvert. – An den Autographensammler Otmar Meisel: „Your copy of PRINCESS PAMELA arrived at this address on March 21, but because I had not received the letter referred to on the flyleaf (and no letter was enclosed in the package), I thought I’d wait a few days for its delivery […]” (a. d. Br. v. 25. März). – „With any luck, this may reach you simultaneously with my note of yesterday (mailed this morning) […] Your letter was most interesting.

I find your appraisal of my work very astute: it agrees with mine. PRINCESS PAMELA is my own favorite among my own work, too, a real labor of love. And yes, PRINCE OF DARKNESS is indeed a weak collection, containing too many efforts from the early days of my career, and too few stories of the first rank (but I like the anti-advertising short-short, THE ROOM, which has been reprinted many times, and once appeared on West German television) […] Your description of INCUBUS and its uneasy mixed-genre balancing is quite accurate, I think. Commercially, it has been my most successful novel to date, by far outselling any of the others and reaping a very large film sale […]” (a. d. Br. v. 26. März). – Jeweils auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf..
