"When I was listing BR's library in May, 1967, I remarked to him on how much I admired 'Forstice', which I'd read in typescript. (He had the ms boxed in the library.) He said he didn't like the last part, and that he didn't want the story to be printed. I said I thought the last part was the best of all. He said (immediately) that well, it could be printed, then but not until he was dead. What surprises me about this, in retrospect, is that it took only a couple of words of praise from a nobody to Russell to change his mind."
