This chapter examines Lovecraft's life and work between 1923 and 1924. It describes his involvement with the National Amateur Press Association and United Amateur Press Association; his travels; his contributions the magazine Weird Tales, where he quickly became a fixture, appearing in five of the six issues from October 1923 to April 1924; and his discovery of the great Welsh writer Arthur Machen. The chapter also considers Lovercraft's theory of the weird tale that would, with some modifications, serve him his entire life, as well as his political views.
