Lovecraftian and Lovecraft Circle items frequently appeared in this 'zine. Here are some images and various notes.

Jimster57 syas: The 2nd pic is from the back cover of #2,and features Margaret Brundage, who did some pretty risque covers for Weird Tales, back in the day. I read that HPL was so mortified by 'em, thathe tore off the covers to his own copies! ... "Margaret Brundage used her daughters as models. Her fondness for the female form embarrassed H.P. Lovecraft, who used to remove the covers and dispose of them."from Living in Fear by Les Daniels ... http://www.shawnnacol.com/DM-Brundage.htm
