Typed Letter signed in 1992, wondering why anyone's kids would be interested in a collection of autographs
Typed Letter signed: "Joan Aiken", 1 page, 8¼x11½. No place, 1992 March 18. To Robert Allen, in full: "Thank you for your interesting letter. Of course I have not the least objection to giving you my autograph for your sons, but I wonder, will a book full of signatures really be so interesting and meaningful for them? Perhaps it will; I don't think I am able to judge. Anyway, I hope that your hopes and aspirations for them will be fulfilled. No, I have never written an autobiography, but my father, Conrad Aiken, of course did so, and I think his is still in print. It was called USHANT. Here is my autograph, Yours sincerely". Prolific English novelist Joan Aiken (1924-2004), the daughter of American author Conrad Aiken, wrote over 100 books in many different genres, including children's stories. She published a 40-year series of novels set in an alternate history London, known collectively as the Wolves Chronicles. She published several novels intended as sequels to novels of Jane Austin. She won an Edgar Allen Poe Award (1972), and received an MBE for her contribution to children's literature. 2 horizontal fold creases. Edges lightly ragged. Torn at upper left edge. Top corners lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
