“In 1975, the young Lovecraft scholar Peter Cannon met the elderly Frank Belknap Long, one of H. P. Lovecraft’s closest friends. Over the next two decades, until Long’s death in 1994, Cannon himself became a close friend of Long, and in the memoir Long Memories he has painted an unforgettable portrait of the aging writer living an impoverished existence in New York City with his wife, Lyda. Cannon recounts how other members of the Lovecraft circle in the city, including S. T. Joshi, Robert M. Price, and Stefan Dziemianowicz, also encountered Long, and how some of them transported him and his wife to Providence, R.I., for their unexpected appearance at the H. P. Lovecraft Centennial Conference in 1990.” #70203
