The Ayn Rand Letter


The Ayn Rand Letter

The Ayn Rand Letter was an Objectivist magazine published from October 1971 to February 1976, as successor to the previous The Objectivist.

Unlike the previous magazines, it was produced in the style of a typewritten letter, with usually a single major article per issue, and was usually 6-8 pages long. Originally published fortnightly, Rand's ill health caused the letter to become increasingly behind schedule around 1975 (a whole year passed between issues), when it went monthly (then bi-monthly), and finally ceased publication, after only 3 issues were published in 1975 & 1976. The closest to a successor publication was "The Objectivist Forum", which came out in 1980.

Rand was the publisher, editor and the author of most of the articles, however, Leonard Peikoff contributed articles as well, and was associate editor.

Most of Rand's articles were later reprinted in the books "" and "The Voice of Reason".

A hardback collection of the Letter was published by Palo Alto Book Service and is still available from the Ayn Rand Institute through the Ayn Rand Bookstore [http://www.aynrandbookstore2.com/] .
