Mystery Mail

Today there was a USPS Priority Mail envelope, with no return address, plastered with 15 37-cent stamps. Inside, a photocopy of a 101-page screenplay, “I, Robot”, by Jeff Vintar. Third draft, dated December 2001. No letter, no return address. I do on rare occasion get unsolicited submissions–more often by email–from people who haven’t done their homework to realize that neither Locus, nor Locus Online, is a market for fiction (or screenplays). Yet a quick Google search reveals that Jeff Vintar was in fact the screenwriter for the I, Robot movie that came out a few months ago, starring Will Smith… which I didn’t see. So I can’t tell if this is the actual script that was used. Even so. Who sent this, and why?
