And then there's *this* asshole @ 11:39 am


Remember when I put together a little syndicate to try to win HPL's long-thought-lost essay on astrology commissioned by Houdini that might have once formed part of the never completed Cancer of Superstition? Naturally, I've always wondered what happened, and though there were vague rumors, now we know...

The MS is being sold off page by page on ebay.

ASSHOLE! FUCK YOU RIGHT IN THE NUTS!

That shit pisses me off to no end. It's vandalism of the worst kind.

Do you remember the winning bid offer?

I don't remember the exact price, but I think it was somewhere north of $10,000.

Actually, I don't remember when you did this. Did you contact me or S.T. about it?

I think so. I have a faint recollection of asking you whether you thought it was real, and that you were satisfied that it was genuine, or at least that the handwriting looked like HPLs, and that ST had concurred. I don't know if I mentioned the so-called consortium, but that happened as a result of some last minute emails getting flung around crazily.

Arkham Books had it at the World Horror Con in Salt Lake City last year under glass, and I know Peter Cannon had taken a look at it. Had I known it wasn't going to be sold in its entirety or donated to Brown, I could have executed a daring raid! Curses!
