" Written in response to Hartley's TLS asking: "How important . was [your] high school education, and is college experience necessary for creative writing?" Hartley had cited the biographical sketch in MODERN SF, and Clarke responds in his reply: "The statement in MODERN SF is very much out of date; at current count I have 25 books published or about to appear. Incidentally my degree was in physics and maths, not chemistry. "ALL education and experience is important to a writer; he can't have too much of either. I did not go to college until I was almost 30; my first short stories and novels were done while I was still in the RAF. You will find more of my biography in the Ballantine edition of EARTHLIGHT, and Clifton Fadiman's comments in my new anthology ACROSS THE SEA OF STARS may be helpful. "My education was essential for works such as INTERPLANETARY FLIGHT and THE EXPLORATION OF SPACE, but much less so for my novels. And much of my current writing (e.g., THE REEFS OF TAPROBANE, THE DEEP RANGE) is based on my present underwater activities, which don't even require a high school education . The enclosed data sheet may also be useful to you . Sincerely, Arthur C. Clarke." Small tear at fold, else fine.

Omarr was the "astrologer to the stars" and published a daily horoscope that appeared in more than 200 newspapers; his books of horoscopes sold over 50 million copies. He started out during the Second World War at the age of 17 when his predictions of horse races, boxing matches, and other sporting events were broadcast on Armed Forces Radio. Omarr and Miller became close friends, sharing the same tastes. Omarr liked to surround himself with beautiful women and was the personal adviser to Jayne Mansfield, Rita Hayworth, Kim Novak, and Mae West, among others. Omarr wrote a book on Miller, Henry Miller: His World of Urania, and Miller wrote the introduction to Sydney Omarr's Astrological Guide to 1973 and the liner notes to the record album Presenting Sydney Omarr. A very nice association. .
