nd [~1965]. Manuscript. Unbound. Near fine. 25pp, singled-sided, typed. Apartness is Vinge's first story. It was pubilshed in New Worlds in 1965. The present manuscript is almost certainly from that time given that NWSF151 is indicated at the top and the page numbers match. Further, Vinge's address is listed Okemos (he moved to San Diego in 1972). Annotated throughout by two hands. Our assumption is that one hand is the editor / typesetter, the other is Vinge. We don't have too many reference points for Vinge's handwriting, but those we do have suggest a similarity. So, we wouldn't say it's certainly Vinge's hand, but likely. The annotations are mostly spelling corrections and minor amendments. Likely the top copy. An important entry into science fiction publication for one of the century's top SF writers.
