Letter from Andre Norton on ebay
#1
There's an interesting letter from Andre Norton, dated October 1, 1963, on ebay today. In it she talks about a sequel to Witch World, to be titled Quest for Kolder, and refers to a historical novel she's working on set in Han Dynasty, China.

Interesting to hear the working title for Web of the Witch World. Would the historical novel refer to Imperial Lady? I don't have that title, and haven't yet read it.

Sounds like Imperial Lady. I wasn't aware that She was working on that that one that early. Thanks for the info. Later Kind Folks--Paul:bg:

I took a look at the item.

It is directed to Mr. Bowers, and is in receipt of DOUBLE BILL.
It is being sold by Bwana25.

The DOUBLE BILL is a very scarse fanzine.

There is also the DOUBLE BILL SYMPOSIUM, by Bill Mallardi and Bill Bowers, which is a paper back, 1969.

I believe that Bwana is the ebay name for Mike Resnick, who is/was slowly selling off the estate of Bill Bowers.

So who was Bill Bowers? Was he an editor or publisher?

I always thought that the double Bill was Bill Malardi and Bill Crawford. I seem to remember a letter from Malardi around 1990. He told me to give Andre his regards when I went for a visit. Crawford was the publisher for Fantasy magazine which printed "People of The Crater" in issue 1 and "The Gifts of Asti" in issue 3. I'm not sure, but I think the magazine folded soon after that. I vaguely remember buying some books from Malardi(in Detroit). The letter is put up somewhere. I will soon be mounting an archaeological dig to locate this letter an other Nortonian ephemera.

I looked up Bill Bowers and found a little bit of information, which I have recapped in this Bill Bowers thread in our General SF Authors Forum.
