Lilian Jackson Braun Message Board
Robert Stevens posts on 5/7/2012 10:21:26 AM
I have been a long time fan of Lilian Jackson Braun. Sorry to learn of her passing - in the obit I learned she was born in Willamansett, MA. a few miles from where I grew up.
I have two letters from Lilian - one hand written and one typed but signed along with the original envelopes.
Would anyone be interested in purchasing either/or both?

Not sure if my last message posted so will post again.
We would love to have the books for our library if you are willing to give them away.
We will gladly pay the postage.

Anita, you might get a good price on eBay, Alibris, Amazon, or Half dot com if you sell them as sets. I'm guessing you have two sets, since she only authored about 30 books, although there are two or three companion books by other authors. You might also offer them for sale individually. You could join the series' fan club on facebook and offer them to members. Is there a used book store near you? If all else fails, donate them to your local library's next book sale, Salvation Army, Goodwill, or church rummage sale. Even those of us who have already read them collect them and read them again many times over (yes, we embrace our inner Potteresque fanaticism).

My aunt gave me the whole set of Cat Who books, about 60 of them. Do you know anywhere I could sell them or give them away?

Always thought that Smelled Smoke would be about Quill having a nightmare about everything that happend in 60 whiskers. Then the barn would really be on fire, but Koko would wake Quill in time to save everything. I so love this series of books. I very much miss Ms. Lilian.

Nancy and Rose, that's why I proposed a plot for Smelled Smoke in which Polly was kidnapped and being held in Europe against her will. There is no way she'd throw away her whole life via letter--not only Qwill, but also Brutus and Catta.

I so agree with you. What a way to end the series! I'm sure if LJB was in good health this travesty never would have happened.
I wonder how did her publisher still have it printed. It was an insult to her fans.'

I was sorry to hear of her passing, but she must have been ill for quite a while. Her last book, The cat who had 60 Whiskers was not very good at all. It's pretty obvious someone else finished it from her outline or notes. As as long time fan of the entire series, there is no way that Polly would have left for Paris without seeing Qwill in person, and no way she would have decided to stay. Even on the off chance she would stay a while, she would call him. They spoke every night. They were very close. You don't say goodbye via a third person. That is probably why the last book was cancelled. ^0 Whiskers got terrible reviews.

I wish the "husband who" would post a little note on this forum. We fans would love to know more about her life.
