Dr. Hess:

I recently read your excellent paper “On Making Emotional Contact with a Schizoid Patient.” Psychological testing showed that I have a strong schizoid trend in my personality, though I am not schizoid. May I interest you to take a look at an unusual work of fiction I recently completed? To some extent it is a creative transformation of my schizoid tendencies. The text is in the attachment.

Thank you for adding to the sparse literature on schizoid disorder!
