The death of Herman C. Koenig at the previous May at age 65, of heart failuer, is noted in a biography of a column-and a quarter, by Edward H. Cole. HPL is mentioned briefly. Koenig was an avid collector of supernatural fiction and horror books, long before it was an established pastime, and it was Koenig who introduced H.P. Lovecraft to the more serious of Hodgson's fiction—The House on the Borderland, and The Night Land, which prompted HPL to append Hodgson to his ever essay—Supernatural Fiction in Literature. Printed in English; Sheldon Wesson happened to be stationed in Japan at this time. Bedsheet sized, unfolded. From the Hyman Bradofsky collection.
