FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Arthur Widner


On Widner's objection to "The Haunter in the Dark" (referencing also "The Whisperer in Darkness"), on the National Amateur Press Association (and various correspondents Lovecraft helped join - Frank Belknap Long, Jr., Donald Wollheim, Duane W. Rimel, R. H. Barlow, and Emil Petaja), Lovecraft not caring for pulp science fiction (but appreciating novels like H. G. Wells', S. Fowler Wright's The World Below, and W. Olaf Stapledon's Last and First Men), Lovecraft being too laid up with correspondence, and ill health to write anything since "Haunter."
