And the last of the REH Sport-Story appearances, with the Dec 25, 1931 issue. "Kid Galahad" (appearing here as "The Good Knight").

I always found this cover a tad ambiguous. Maxwell Grant is not Walter Gibson here, btw, just the S&S house name.

At any rate, a very rare pulp in incredibly beautiful condition, with a bone white cover.

Looking amazing for the age

And here is the last entry of the REH sports pulps, one which few people know of because the REH connection was only discovered a few years ago: a full page biographical letter, which, sadly, was published the very month Howard died. Dime Sports, June 1936

Here is a nice little series of cool Howard/Lovecraft items.

In the course of the Lovecraft/Howard correspondence, they would often share clippings and documents. While all the original letters are now held by the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, what few enclosed documents that survived are not, and those are 5 photos taken by Howard, with his typewritten comments on the back. I obtained those a year ago or so.

Yep, "The House of Arabu", heavily edited by Otis Kline.

It could have been worse, a few years later de Camp would have edited it into a Conan story...
