Very personal memoir by a close friend and member of the original Lovecraft circle. "Of all Lovecraft's chroniclers, the one who probably knew him best was Frank Belknap Long. Long's affectionate 'portrait of HPL' includes a wealth of anecdotal material and reconstructed conversations with Lovecraft, but it makes no pretense at formal biography." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 8-63.
