Lovecraft's Legacy: 1959

The Macabre Reader, edited by Donald A. Wollheim. Published by Ace Books. Copyright 1959, probable 1st or early printing based on the 35 cent cover price.
This has a great group of stories by classic horror authors - Thorp McClusky, Robert Bloch, John Martin Leahy, H.P. Lovecraft, Thomas Burke, Donald Wandrei, Clark Ashton Smith, Zealia Brown Bishop, Robert E. Howard and Henry S. Whitehead.Apparently Thorp McClusky was a late 1930's mainstay of the pulps including Weird Tales. Many of the others were compadres of HPL. I located on the 'net a few mid-1920's tales of Leahy in Weird Tales.
