S.T. Joshi’s new blog post notes The Lovecraft Circle and Others, a new book I very briefly noted on Tentaclii back in 2012, but could find nothing about. The publisher has no sample or even a blurb, and the book is unlisted on Amazon etc. Joshi says…

“It is a most engaging work of reminiscence, with some surprising little tidbits — such as the fact that, in the late 1920s, Mary Elizabeth Counselman (then only a callow teenager) wrote a fan letter to Lovecraft, which he uncharacteristically never answered. Perhaps it never reached him. It would be hard to imagine the gentlemanly author not replying to a missive from a young lady. There is some other illuminating information that I will highlight in a review for the [next] Lovecraft Annual.”
