FROM NOTECARDS TO CLEAN DRAFT: SHECKLEY'S WORK IN PROGRESS. Robert Sheckley was a Hugo- and Nebula-nominated author whose clever and often absurdist sci-fi novels attracted a wide audience. This lot features the working draft of the novel Dramocles, from notecards featuring scene and character ideas to larger manuscript explorations to typed outlines and drafts. A remarkable chance to recreate how a novel is written.
