Lovecraft's Legacy: 1964

In the 1960's HPL was still being reprinted with other eclectic stories.

MAY 1964 Vol. 1 No. 4, MAGAZINE OF HORROR AND STRANGE STORIES. About 5x7" in size digest. 130 pages. Includes: THE DREAMS IN THE WITCH HOUSE BY H.P. LOVECRAFT, What Was It, by Fitz James O'Brien, Beyond the Breakers by Anna Hunger, The Mark of the Beast by Rudyard Kipling, Last Act: October by Tigrina, The Truth about Pyecraft by H.G. Wells, A Psychological Experiment by Richard Marsh, and A Dream of Falling by Attila Hatvany.
I'm at a loss to find anything on Tigrina, Atilla Hatvany, or Anna Hunger. Fitz James O'Brien is a well known author, as is H G Wells and Kipling.
Richard Marsh (1857-1915) was the pseudonym of the British author born Richard Bernard Heldman. He is best known for his supernatural thriller The Beetle, published in the same year as Dracula and initially even more popular. He began to publish short stories, mostly adventure tales, as "Bernard Heldmann," before adopting the name "Richard Marsh" in 1893.
