Found this response to a charming fan letter from the 14-year-old Forrest J. Ackerman drifting around on the web today:
See Ackerman's letter here. "All you speak of is real to me."
Despite a few misspellings, I'm struck by how readable it is. Not many college students could write a letter like that these days. How depressing.
In other news, it seems my somewhat processy post on epic fantasy was linked to by the Castalia House blog: many thanks to them, and a hearty welcome to all you hordes of visitors. You came here to read my thoughts on unity in fantasy; now stay to read my rambling and often irrelevant posts on art, dollhouses, chickens, and cosmogony.
