How misunderstandings happen

There are a lot of HP Lovecraft myths (as in untruths) floating about. I patrol the ebayeum frequently, and when I saw this, I had to post it.

H.P.L: A MEMOIR (1945)
BY AUGUST DERLETH (aka H.P. Lovecraft)

Now, Derleth had a lot of pen names, but Lovecraft wasn't one of them. However, as time goes on and memory conflates, these misunderstandings can easily happen - thus increasing the legend and mythology of Lovecraft's legacy.
