Description


Unusual and rare green 5.25 x 4.25 hotel door hanger turned into a makeshift postcard to Jon White, postmarked in September 1964, signed on the reverse in blue ink by Philip K. Dick. The postcard also features signatures of other sci-fi writers, including: Ray Nelson, Redd Boggs, Miriam Knight, Don Fitch, Terry and Carol Carr, Margo Newkom, Donald Wollheim, Richard and Pat Lupoff, and more. In very good to fine condition, with light overall creasing.

At the date of this postcard, Dick and the other sci-fi writers/publisherswere attending the 22nd National Science Fiction Convention, known that year as 'Pacificon II', at The Leamington Hotel in Oakland, California from 4 to 7 September 1964. In 1963, Dick had won the "Hugo Award" at the previous21st National Science Fiction Convention for his classic novel, "Man in the High Castle".

Jon White was a sci-fi and fantasy fan who was co-editor with Leland Sapiro of the fanzine Riverside Quarterly. Riverside Quarterly began as a retitled continuation of the fanzine Inside Science Fiction (1953-1963; titled Inside on its 1962 revival), published by Ron Smith and then Jon White, which won a Hugo in 1956 and itself incorporated a still earlier fanzine, Fantasy Advertiser (1946-1954).Riverside Quarterly quickly formed a quite different character of its own as an amateur Academic Journal, academic essays on sci-fi and fantasy being its main content; it also published Poetry.
