The Tomb, 1947

Of Lovecraft's early tales, Dagon gets all the press and The Tomb has alwys been the step-child. HPL didn't even seem to like it, but he defended Dagon. Early on it appeared in Weird Tales and once in an Arkham edition, and lay dormant for decades. One bright light was its inclusion in Elinore Blaisdell's ecelctic book of death.

The gang is all here! Lovecraft, Derleth, Quinn, Bloch, Wellman, Klarkashton, Starrett, and FB Long !

And is that ever a groovy cover?
