Lovecraftiana: Margaret Ronan

The world of HP Lovecraft is wide and varied. I picked up an old 1971 (2nd ed 1975) Scholastic copy of The Shadow Over Innsmouth and Other Stories of Horror, ed. by Margaret Ronan.

There is little I know of Margaret Ronan. She does include this in her introduction, "In one letter he {HPL} sent me, [he says] 'As it happens ... it is out of my right, not left shoulder that the ropy tentacles grow. What grows out of the left shoulder is one of my eyeless heads. This head is not to be confused with the one growing out of my right elbow (the one with the green fangs)'."

Lovecraft the jokester!

If anyone knows more about Margaret Ronan, please post below. Thanks.
