In 2009, four del Ray short novels were discovered at his cabin on the Frio River. Estate spokesperson, Thomas Domlery commented recently that, “These short novels are an exciting find for the estate and del Ray fans as they may well be the last stories written by him.” Domlery believes the novels were written during 2007 and early 2008.
