Two Original TYPED and SIGNED letters from Tom Clancy in Reference to Writing of "The Hunt for Red October."

by Clancy, Tom

Condition: Fine


None, 1983. Two original TYPED and SIGNED letters from Tom Clancy to Norman Polmar. They were both typed by Clancy on his insurance company's letterhead with holographic corrections. The first, addressed "Dear Mr. Polmar" dated July 26, 1983, explains in five single-spaced pages, Clancy's plan to write a book about a Soviet captain "stealing" the submarine Red October. In the second letter, addressed "Dear Norman", dated September 12, 1984, Clancy asks Mr. Polmar to read and edit the fictional letter from Captain Ramius, commander of the Red October, to his patron, Admiral Padorin, carefully explaining why he is stealing the ballistic missle submarine. The letter is referred to in the "The Hunt for Red October" , but was never included in the published work. The 1984 letter to Mr. Polmar includes the full text of the letter sent by Ramuis. The copyright date for the "The Hunt for Red October" is 1984. Clancy is now deceased. Mr. Polmar, a long-time friend of Mr. Clancy, is a well-known naval analyst, consultant, and author. In Clancy's first major interview with the press, published in TIME magazine on March 4, 1985, he cites Polmar as one of the key sources for his writing. Mr. Polmar has written a blog describing his relationship with Tom Clancy. Fine Condition.
