The origins of the ‘Fletter’

In Uncategorized on August 6, 2017 by kmflett

Below is the earliest reference to letters from Keith Flett, London, N17, as a ‘fletter’ I can find.

Its from the London Review of Books in 1994

Fletter
I have today conducted a brief analysis of the contents of your Letters page over the past three and a half years. I have discovered that in 1991 you published only one letter from Keith Flett. The following year you published two letters from him and in 1993 four letters. So far this year you have published five. I would be grateful if you could inform your readership as to whether you intend to maintain this exponential trend. If the LRB will carry 16 of Keith Flett’s letters during 1995 it would be worth knowing in advance, so that I can save myself £63.
