Fantasy Fan: June 1934

Seller States: Ultra Rare -- H.P. LOVECRAFT in THE FANTASY FAN -- June 1934 (issue #10)This is an original copy of the legendary THE FANTASY FAN.These rarely come up for sale because very few copies were ever printed, and fewer still remain -- I've heard some estimate that only a couple dozen copies of each issue remain. This particular 73 year-old copy is a bit chipped around the edges (see picture), but otherwise in nice shape.Published by Charles D. Hornig, this issue of The Fantasy Fan features H.P. Lovecraft's story FROM BEYOND, as well as a chapter of Lovecraft's epic essay SUPERNATURAL HORROR IN LITERATURE. In this chapter, Lovecraft writes about The Apex of Gothic Romance. This issue also contains PROSE PASTELS III, The Muse of Hyperborea by Clark Ashton Smith.
In case you can't read the text (try clicking on image) here is what Smith says ... {Glad my article on M. R. James was approved by so many readers. Later on, I hope to do some brief articles on other masters of the macabre and fantastic. Clark Ashton Smith.}
