A propos de cet article

Large octavo, single issue, printed wrappers. W. Paul Cook, an important member of the Lovecraft inner circle, and an ardent member of the amateur press movement, issued five numbers of this periodical between Spring 1943 and July 1947 (making it a defacto annual). The fifth number was not distributed, and none of the numbers were offered for sale. The magazine was devoted to weird literature and featured fiction, poetry, essays and, in one number, a short play. This issue is entirely devoted to "Burrowings of an Old Bookworm" by Rheinhart Kleiner, a long bookish memoir largely devoted to popular fiction he read during his boyhood. "Cook's final major publishing effort was THE GHOST. Five issues appeared from 1943 to 1947, each containing fifty pages that emphasized Lovecraft and collectors. It contained almost every type of verse, fiction, biography, and literary reminiscing, turning it into one of the rarest, most sought-after bits of Lovecraftiana." - Warner, All Our Yesterdays, p. 16. Quite a valuable source of information. Pavlat and Evans, Fanzine Index (1965), p. 49. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 804. Some dust soiling and tanning to covers, patchy darkening to front cover, several small marks on rear cover (a bit of stain from rusting staples), a very good copy with fine interior. Quite scarce.
