"The UAPA reinvigorated Lovecraft and incited him to contribute many poems and essays; in 1916, his first published story, The Alchemist, appeared in the United Amateur Press Association. The earliest commercially published work came in 1922, when he was thirty-one. By this time he had begun to build what became a huge network of correspondents. His lengthy and frequent missives would make him one of the great letter writers of the century. Among his correspondents were Robert Bloch (Psycho) , Clark Ashton Smith, and Robert E. Howard (Conan the Barbarian series). Many former aspiring authors later paid tribute to his mentoring and encouragement through the correspondence. His oeuvre is sometimes seen as consisting of three periods: an early Edgar Allan Poe influence; followed by a Lord Dunsany inspired Dream Cycle; and finally the Cthulhu Mythos stories. However, many distinctive ideas and entities present in the third period were introduced in the earlier works, such as the 1917 story "Dagon", and the threefold classification is partly overlapping.".

Book Description Arkham House, Sauk City, Wisconsin, 1959. Cloth. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good Plus. Taylor, Richard (jacket) (illustrator). First Edition. Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House, 1959. First Edition. One of 2527 copies issued. Signed by Robert Bloch at his entry, "Out of the Ivory Tower" (page 171). Jacket art by Richard Taylor. Small octavo (7 5/8" x 5 1/4") , 313 pp. Near fine book - and this near fine is about as close as you're going to get to fine and still be Near Fine, with no salient flaws (in fact - call it fine; most people would) - in a Very Good plus, very pleasing, unclipped jacket still showing the original $ 5.00 price tag. Jacket has very small traces of peripheral wear, and the standard age-toning of the (white) jacket back. Sharp and bright, no fading anywhere. Handsome copy. A famous aggregation of horror tales, thoughts, reminiscences and poems, compiled by a master of both writing and compiling in that genre, August Derleth, and centered on honoring Lovecraft, the undisputed master of horror. No, Stephen King can't touch Lovecraft - sorry. The title piece was authored by both Lovecraft and Derleth, as was "The Fisherman of Falcon Point". There is plenty more Lovecraft here, as well as Bloch's piece, and Lovecraft tributes of various kinds from Clark Ashton Smith, Donald Wandrei, Dorothy C. Walter, Derleth, Alfred Galpin, Felix Stefanile, and Joseph Payne Brennan. A scarce, handsomely preserved first edition - a piece of genre history, with the nice added touch of Bloch's signature. l52n. Signed by Contributor. Seller Inventory # 000961
