Loaned books

Posted by Ann Carlson on 06/25/2018

I have Poul Anderson's books Merman's Children and Avatar which he autographed to his mother. Would you like to have them?

Hello, Ann! With Karen's death, we're currently moving the Anderson estate from Karen's home in Tujunga, and are dealing with thousands of books and artifacts from a long and productive life. Did Astrid the second (there was an Astrid before her!) loan those books to you or someone you knew? Poul would have autographed them "To Mor," which of course is Danish for mother.

Astrid loaned them to me shortly before she died. They are indeed to Mor. I would love to return them to her family. She was a delightful lady.

Dear Mr. Bear: Oh my goodness! I had not known Mrs. Anderson died more or less recently. My condolences to you, Mrs. Bear, and your children. Memory eternal!
