Notes "H. P. Lovecraft's daily life revolved around correspondence. He is estimated to have written 100,000 letters in his relatively short lifetime, and 20,000 of these letters survive. . . . The following is a sequence of thirty-four letters about the work of H. P. Lovecraft, each one written from Scott to Scott, who have been writing letters to each other for more than thirty years. . . . It should be noted that the texts that follow both are and are not "real" letters. On the one hand, all of them originated as actual missives composed by one of us and sent to the other over the course of almost exactly one year; and some of them retain traces of the specific occasions in which they were thus written and sent. On the other hand, all of these letters have also been revised, rethought, reordered, by both of us, working at times on the other's work, to the point that these texts are necessarily unmoored from their literal points of origin. Many of the letters have footnotes -- some written by that letter's author
