Re: RARA-AVIS: Burnett-Silverberg

From: Robert Elkin (

The following is from the desk of RS himself:

After Burnett died, I was handed a vast mass of almost incoherent manuscript by my agent (his agent too) and asked to carve a novel out of it. The result was THE WINNING OF MICKEY FREE, which Bantam published. There may have been a second Mickey Free novel too. But I wasn't ghosting the books -- just putting the disorderly manuscript into publishable form.

I remember being involved with another Burnett book called ROUND THE CLOCK AT VOLARI'S, which I may have edited in the same way as the Mickey Free stuff, or perhaps it was an incomplete novel that I finished. All this was more than 40 years ago, so I don't have really sharp memories of my role on this one.
