The first poetry book published , just missed by a year as a twentieth anniversary of the author's death. At the time of it's publication, these were thought to be the entirety of Howard's poetry. Eighty-three pages of verse, all of it very readable. [636 copies printed]. Printed British style, with the author's name reading up the spine.

The author's first book published in his own country—ten years after his death—this grand omnibus volume is one of Arkham House's finest books. SKULL-FACE contains H.P. Lovecraft's moving and laudatory— A MEMORIAM—"That such a genuine artist should perish while hundreds of insincere hacks continue to concoct spurious ghosts and vampires and space-ships and occult detectives is indeed a sorry piece of cosmic irony!"

But nothing set in stone Augie managed to find enough stuff for a few more. There are numerous HPL juvenalia present, remini... View more info
