Dick Lupoff discovered HPL when he smuggled an Avon paperback into church in 1946, hid it inside a hymnal and read "The Dunwich Horror". In later years he co-edited and published the Hugo-winning fanzine Xero with his wife, Pat. Working at Canaveral Press, he became the posthumous editor of Edgar Rice Burroughs. His own books include Sun's End, Marblehead: A Novel of H. P. Lovecraft, The Great American Paperback, and the Lindsey and Plum mystery series. He is currently Editorial Director of Surinam Turtle Press. His next book will be Dreamer's Dozen.
