Ray Bradbury typed letter signed, plus two original typed manuscripts, given by Bradbury to Fracisco Porrua, who edited Bradbury's works for the Spanish language population. Accompanying the typed manuscripts for ''The Women'' and ''The Shape of Things'', Bradbury writes to Porrua on 3 March 1964 on his personal stationery: ''...I have no secretary, which means that hundreds of letters which come in during each month must be funneled through my own inadequate hands and sometimes I fall far behind with my correspondence. Forgive me. To help you in your search for stories for R IS FOR ROCKET, I enclose the following science-fantasy stories and weird-fantasy stories...'' Bradbury goes on to list 10 stories, including ''The Women'' and ''The Shape of Things'' and then continues, ''...I believe these stories would give you much to juggle with in reshaping your various titles in the various books...'' Bradbury continues, regarding the introduction for ''R Is for Rocket'' and writes, ''...I am happy to hear you will soon be making an offer on MACHINERIES OF JOY and THE ANTHEM SPRINTERS...[signed] Ray Bradbury''. Both manuscripts are typed on thin tracing paper which was placed behind regular sheets of paper. ''The Women'' is 16 pages and ''The Shape of Things'' is 26 pages. Manuscripts and letter measure 8.5'' x 11''. Lot is in very good condition.
