So, today I got a flyer from Heritage Auctions (the folks I got the Sime from, who now won't stop sending me message after message about other things they have that I don't want) that a set of ten Lovecraft letters, mostly unpublished, to one F. J. Pabody* (1932-1937) are being auctioned off, with an expected price of about $20,000. That's a lot, and just goes to show how mainstreamed Lovecraft has become (like Tolkien, and increasingly Lewis as well).
Here's the link:
*looking at the name, I'd guess it was the inspiration for Dr. Pabodie, creator of the famous drill of the same name, in HPL's AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS
