H.P. LOVECRAFT'S aunt Lilian has died. It shows the level of continued committment that HPL had to Amateur Journalism that he notified the organization ( or was it simply C.W. Smith with whom he had a personal and lengthy relationship with) that his aunt had died. I do think that Lovecraft had a better rapport with his aunts than he ever did with his mother. Also poetry by Kuntz & Goodenough. HPL06/17 View more info

A paragraph on Amateur Journalism is quoted from Lovecraft, possibly originally in a letter to TRYOUT Smith - "Amateur journalism is a pastime, but it is more than a common pastime. It is at bottom a spontaneous striving for untrammelled artistic expression on the part of those unable to speak as they choose through the recognized literary channels ans as such it possesses the fundamentals which makes for permenant endurance."also poetry from HPL clients Eugene B.

James F. Morton, Jr., snipes back at Lovecraft in a one-page commentary on HPL's acumen to which Morton confesses—"Peccav!" Guilty, or I have sinned. "All I can do is congratulate Mr. Lovecraft on his marvellous acumen which has enabled him to discover the astonishing fact, that Persia is not in Europe, and the noble zeal, which has impelled him to lose no time in imparting the information to the amateur world, otherwise certain to have been fatally mislead by my criminal carelessness." Of course in the long ensuing years, HPL and Morton became very very dear friends. Lovecraft just had t... View more info

Lovecraft edited this little chapbook of poetry from an amateur "oldtimer" of whom he was quite fond. Hyman Bradofsky, publisher of THE CALIFORNIAN and correspondent of HPL's told me that HPL "touched up" some—if not all of these poems." Lovecraft wrote a two-page introduction defining Dr. Kuntz's poetry, thusly—"often Alexandrine—. . . exhibiting apt and stately compound words sometimes coined with vast originality and spontaneousness." From the HYMAN BRADOFSKY collection. One of only three books edited by HPL. These early amateur publications are rare. Quite a nice copy, with Pi... View more info
