In which Lovecraft writes to Donald Wandrei, a young correspondent who will go on to be one of the founders of Arkham House, and play a key role in preserving Lovecraft's legacy.
This episode is coming out on the Ides of March, the 83rd anniversary of Lovecraft's death. We want to take a moment to humbly recognize HPL's vast contributions to popular culture and to our lives. Ave et Vale!
Our thanks to Hippocampus Press for their Letters to Donald Wandrei and others.
Both of the movies that HPL mentions in this letter are watchable online.
Metropolis (1927) by Fritz Lang
The Thief of Bagdad (1924) by Raoul Walsh
