So He'll Come Next Year, Right?

In 1989, legendary science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov declined an invitation from Portland Arts & Lectures (letter below).

Actually, Asimov didn't "decline" it. He blew the invitation out of the water.
"There is absolutely no chance that I will ever be in Oregon under any circumstances."
This and other literary ephemera is currently on display at Portland’s Central Library.
