Loved this book from page 1. A lot of interesting stories about the editor of Weird Tales, Robert E Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, Lovecraft, Otis Adelbert Kline, W K Mashburn Jr, Seabury Quinn, Hugh Doak Rankin, Henry Kuttner, C L Moore, Edmond Hamilton and others. Includes essays on the 'Death of the Pulp Era' 'Lovecraft Controversy - Why?' etc.
Fairly hard to find out much about many of the authors and also pretty hard to find more than a few short story collections, so this book was an excellent find for me.
Another good book to check out for information about the WT authors such as Henry S Whitehead is 'Arkham's Masters of Horror: A 60th Anniversary Anthology Retrospective of the First 30 Years of Arkham House (Hardcover)'
After reading each of the essays I was interested to find out more about some of the authors and purchased a selection of their works via Amazon.
E Hoffmann Price: a wonderful storyteller / communicator. Really glad I purchased this informative book of the pulp era and beyond.
