Here's an email I got. I replied and asked if I should put it up here on the forum, but I didn't get anything back. I assume, since they sent it to me unrequested, they probably want this to happen, although I would be a bit happier, if they bothered to reply to my email.
I wanted to let you know that on May 1 the Lafferty Estate tentatively plans to sell the rights to the entire literary output of the science fiction writer, R.A. Lafferty, to the Locus Science Fiction Foundation for $70,000 plus 50% of any future profit from the Lafferty rights in excess of $30,000 in any single year. The sale will proceed unless someone makes a more favorable offer.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in purchasing the Lafferty literary works, please have them contact me at LaffertyEstate@gmail.com
or 919-286-9519 and I will provide additional information to help them decide whether they would like to make a better offer before May 1.
This sale will include the rights to approximately 21 published and 13 unpublished novels, approximately 297 published and 96 unpublished short works such as short stories, essays and poems, approximately 8 published and 4 unpublished book-length collections of short works and approximately 24 published trade paperbacks or booklets. The complete description of the rights being offered for sale is contained in my "Letter to Potential Bidders", which I will provide upon request.
