L Sprague de Camp's Biography

Many have taken exception to this biography. Frank Belknap Long wrote a long monograph biography to counter it, and S T Joshi has cast scorn on parts of it. de Camp was a classic and well received science fiction writer, a science popularizer, and a skeptic in the true sense as (I'm sure) belonged to CSICOP.

However this is an interesting quote from a magician seller of Houdini aarcana on ebay (15 March 2007), "This is a toss up on who is more shallow, the author {de Camp} or Lovecraft {as to Houdini?}"
