IN THE MID - 1920's, roughly two blocks from where the Warlock Shop once stood, in Brooklyn Heights, lived a quiet, reclusive man, an author of short
stories, who eventually divorced his wife of two years and returned to his boyhood home in Rhode Island, where he lived with his two aunts. Born on
August 20, 1890, Howard Phillips Lovecraft would come to exert an impact on the literary world that dwarfs his initial successes with Weird Tales
magazine in 1923. He died, tragically, at the age of 46 on March 15, 1937, a victim of cancer of the intestine and Bright's Disease. Though persons of
such renown as Dashiell Hammett were to become involved in his work, anthologising it for publication both here and abroad, the reputation of a man
generally conceded to be the "Father of Gothic Horror" did not really come into its own until the past few years, with the massive re-publication of his
works by various houses, a volume of his selected letters, and his biography. In July 1975, issue The Atlantic Monthly, there appeared a story entitled
"There Are More Things", written by Jorge Luis Borges, "To the memory of H.P. Lovecraft". This gesture by a man of the literary stature of Borges is
certainly an indication that Lovecraft has finally ascended to his rightful place in the history of American literature, nearly forty years after his death.
