It seems only appropriate to wish the old gent from Providence a happy 122nd birthday. As tribute, I include a lovely piece of artwork from the soon-to-be-published Aim High by Joseph A. West (see Books page for additional information). This drawing was originally published in 1974 for a special H. P. Lovecraft issue of The United Co-operative, and soon thereafter graced the cover of the second mailing of The Vaults of Yoh-Vombis.
I was thrilled to learn recently that Fedogan & Bremer is making a return to publishing. They are, of course, responsible for many gorgeous volumes — two of which, Colossus and Don’t Dream, I hold as very special treasures indeed. F&B’s newest book will be a Robert M. Price anthology entitled Worlds of Cthulhu, featuring a delightful Gahan Wilson cover. It’s so good to see the return of this exceptional publisher, and it will be equally thrilling to discover what the coming years have to offer.
