The Gentleman from Angell Street:
Memories of H.P. Lovecraft

By Muriel E. Eddy and C.M. Eddy, Jr.
Edited by Jim Dyer


Back Cover Text

Muriel E. (Gammons) Eddy and Clifford Martin Eddy, Jr. were married on February 10, 1918 following a correspondence which developed from their common interest in creative writing. They continued their writing careers after marriage, raising a family of three children.
     In 1923 they met H.P. Lovecraft and enjoyed a close association with him until his death in 1937. The three of them frequently sat long hours into the night at the Eddy’s house reading aloud their newest weird and macabre creations.
     Mrs. Eddy wrote many profiles of H.P. Lovecraft over the years. The first article she wrote was for the booklet Rhode Island on Lovecraft published by Grant-Hadley in 1945. She was also president of the Rhode Island Writers’ Guild for over twenty years.
     Mr. Eddy has had many of his stories published in mystery, detective and occult magazines, most notably Weird Tales.
     He worked in collaboration with Lovecraft on research projects for the magician Harry Houdini. Mr. Eddy and Lovecraft also took many midnight walks to various parts of Providence and beyond, exchanging ideas for stories of the fantastic as they went along.
