Donald Wandrei

Donald A. Wandrei (1908-1987) was an American science fiction, fantasy and weird fiction writer, poet and editor. He had fourteen stories in Weird Tales, another sixteen in Astounding Stories, plus a few in other magazines including Esquire. Wandrei started writing in 1926. In late 1927 he hitchhiked from Minnesota to Rhode Island to visit H.P. Lovecraft. Lovecraft conducted him on a grand antiquarian tour of Providence, R.I. In 1939, Wandrei and August Derleth co-founded the publishing house Arkham House, an action for which Wandrei is perhaps better remembered than for his own fiction. He died in St. Paul in 1987.
