"From even the greatest of horrors irony is seldom absent."

- H.P. Lovecraft, from "The Shunned House"

I recently read on that H.P. Lovecraft made a living in part as a ghostwriter. This is sadly ironic, because his own horror works didn't gain superior fame until after his death. I wonder, does the ghost of Lovecraft float around the living, soaking up the adulation of today?


One short story he penned as a ghostwriter was for the famous magician, Harry Houdini. It was published in Weird Tales, entitled "Imprisoned with the Pharaohs."
