Lest We Forget
August Derleth on the Subject of H.P. Lovecraft

Lest We Forget is a highly detailed chronological listing of every piece of writing August Derleth composed about writer H. P. Lovecraft (each with a brief quote to provide context and essence) supplemented by little known letters selected from Derleth's personal papers.
Lest We Forget is a reminder to everyone about the important role August Derleth had in fostering the literary reputation of H.P. Lovecraft until Lovecraft was well on the way to becoming the canonical American author he is in 2008. Specifically, it is directed to the generation of Lovecraft aficionados and critics who upon the heels of Derleth benefitted from his nearly half-century of devotion to a friend. Where what Derleth wrote might now seem commonplace, it is nevertheless interesting to note just when he wrote.  — John D. Haefele
