The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. The most notable tidbit about this book is that Zealia Bishop had very little to do with the actual writing -- H. P. Lovecraft gave her the idea for the story and then, later re-wrote most of the book to make it publishable, without receiving any credit for doing so and very little remuneration. "Among her works are three horror stories she wrote in collaboration with H. P. Lovecraft ("The Curse of Yig", "Medusa's Coil", and The Mound). Her stories appeared in the magazine Weird Tales. However, they were extensively revised by Lovecraft to the point of being ghostwritten. Arkham House published her volume The Curse of Yig (1953) which contains the three horror stories by Bishop and Lovecraft, as well as two profiles by Bishop, one about H. P. Lovecraft and the other about August Derleth. That on Lovecraft has been reprinted in Peter Cannon's collection of essays on Lovecraft, Lovecraft Remembered. The three Lovecraft-Bishop revision stories also appear in The Horror in the Museum and Other Revisions. " (from Wikipedia)
