Van Vogt Manuscript To Auction

A.E. Van Vogt’s original revised typescript for Slan goes under the hammer at Heritage Auctions Rare Book Signature Auction on October 17.

The author’s note with the manuscript indicates Van Vogt edited it himself from the magazine version, then sent it to August Derleth at Arkham House for further editorial input. The novel was finally published in 1946.

Yes, this is your chance to own a little piece of history from the novel that gave us the battle-cry “Fans are Slans!”

One thought on “Van Vogt Manuscript To Auction

  1. I certainly hope the bidding will be too rich for my blood. A.E. Van Vogt is hard to find in bookstores these days, but when it comes to “Slan”, attention must be paid.
