Leonard Nimoy's 1982 Letter Regarding Spock's Death

From the January 1982 episode of Starlog magazine. In it they publish a letter from the actor regarding the magazing having published a rumor about Spock's death before "The Wrath Of Kahn" hit theaters.

Courtesy of The Huffington Post:
In the November issue you report that the death of Spock was "brought about by Leonard Nimoy's request."
In your January issue you reiterated the same report and then you quoted "Star Trek II" executive producer Harve Bennett as saying "... Nimoy did not insist on killing the character as a prerequisite to his appearing in the second film."
I was not contacted for a statement, but here it is: Harve Bennett was right, you were wrong ...... twice.
Yours for more accurate journalism,
Leonard Nimoy
