Just one update but for a very good reason…

Quite a while back I blogged about the Locus Collection now housed at Duke University. More than a year later I’ve managed to acquire copies of the Koontz-related material from that collection. It’s not a lot but it does contain six unpublished letters from Dean to editor Charlie Brown dated between 1977 and 1994. One of them includes a two-page appreciation of Sheri L. Tepper. Other topics include the film versions of Demon Seed and Watchers, along with the ceasing of his use of the Leigh Nichols pseudonyms.

Again, this isn’t a lot of new material but it’s unique and I want to do it justice. As a result I’m taking my time to get it right (the cross-references are going to be a nightmare,) and in doing so awaiting an answer I’ve sent back to the librarians at Duke. It’s possible I’ll get these items posted next week but it could take longer.
