Legacy Circle members should have received their summer surprise: Drafted: Unsent Letters to H. P. Lovecraft. This 20-page item collects all of the known draft pages for Robert E. Howard’s letters to the gent from Providence, all presented in facsimile, and most never seen before. In these unsent pages Howard makes one of his rare mentions of Adolph Hitler and begins honing his side of the perennial “Barbarism Vs. Civilization” debate. A list of contents follows:
Introduction by Rob Roehm
Draft: Ca. July 1, 1930 (3 pages)
Draft: Ca. August 1930 (2 pages)
Draft: Ca. July 1933 (8 pages)
Draft: Ca. January 1935 (1 paragraph)
Undated Address Lists (2 lists)
Draft: May 11, 1936 (1 page)
This collection is free to the 2013 Legacy Circle members, and not available to the general public. Furthermore, at the end of the year, it will no longer be available at all. And this is just one of the perks our members receive during the year. Legacy Circle members get items like Drafted, our quarterly Newsletter, a discount on books, a membership pin, invitations to special events, etc. Other levels of membership receive some of these bonuses, but not our special publications; those are reserved for the Legacy Circle.
