He really seemed to enjoy this trip south, especially South Carolina and Florida.

:D  I am not at all well-read, compared to those with a comprehensive study of literature, and I only remember Lovecraft from seeing his books on bookstore shelves.  I read his bio, briefly, and was quite touched, especially since I had written some ghost stories in the past.    Thanks for educating me.  :thanks:
