Re: Lovecraft

J.J.: You are right to chide me. I am, as HPL would no doubt say, well

chid. There is a story in August Derleth’s biography of HPL. He is at the

memorial to (I think) Nathan Hale, shaking his fist and shouting: “Thus

perish all traitors!”

Has anyone since HPL used the word “eldritch”?
