something that is weird adj.
Even today, when I make a weird fan’s acquaintance, same seems apt inevitably to mention ‘my pal’ Lovecraft and wink knowingly—as tho I should like to put poison in HP’s potatoes.
I've read some good verse dealing with the weird and fantastic and since I like poetry I would love to see Startling Stories with such a department.
Lovecraft must have something people like; he is virtually the only legend to survive from the literature of the macabre, or supernatural, or fantastic. He is about the sole writer of the weird I would include with the best of older horror writers—William Hope Hodgson, Arthur Machen, and Algernon Blackwood.
He picked the old mall because it is enclosed and free from the eyes of cameras, but it’s big and out of the way and full of weirds and he doesn’t love the idea of her hanging around among them too long.
We would like cites of any date.
