Pomona, California: Hyman Bradofsky, Spring 1936 (volume 3, number 4). Octavo, single issue, decorated wrappers, stapled. Includes the first printing of "The Man on the Rail," a nautical horror story by Duane W. Rimel. Rimel (b. 1915) came into contact with H. P. Lovecraft in early 1934 and "became as close a colleague and informal revision client as their situation on opposite sides of the country allowed. Rimel was, like Bloch, a budding writer of weird fiction, but even under Lovecraft's tutelage he did not develop into a full-fledged professional; he did manage to have a few stories published in professional magazines (two in WEIRD TALES) and several more in fan and semi-pro magazines, but that was all. After Lovecraft's death he wrote westerns and other hackwork (including soft-core pornography) under a variety of pseudonyms." - Joshi, H. P. Lovecraft: A Life, p. 544. A fine copy. (#107539).

Price: $45.00
