Lovecraftian Novel (1979)

In July 1979, Donald Grant announced a new cloth bound book based on Lovecraft. So, we see that at 42 years after Lovecraft's death that fan fiction has focused on Lovecraft as a character rather as the producer of stories. The book commemorates Providence, RI as the host of the 1st World Fantasy Convention (1975). It includes a forgotten Lovecraft manuscript and a hidden underground Providence with sinsiter goings on. The now-legendary Kirby McCauley is also a character, as is Robert Booth then-chariman of the 1979 World Horror Convention.

The blurb says that the sale price of the 112 page book was $10 of 1,125 copies. 240 special slip-case editions offered at $20.
