Fritz Leiber, Robert Bloch and Others Discussing H. P. Lovecraft in 1963 – A Complete PDF File, with JPG’s Available Too!

Lovecraft: A Symposium (per the cover), or H. P. Lovecraft: A Symposium (per the title page), or Symposium On H. P. Lovecraft (per the first transcript page) was transcribed from the recording of the panel discussion on H.P. Lovecraft at the 24-October-1963 Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society meeting.

The panelists were: Fritz Leiber, Robert Bloch, Sam Russell, Arthur Jean Cox, and Leland Sapiro; and annotations to the transcription were provided by August Derleth.

As with other hard-to-find documents in my collection, I am providing a PDF file copy of this booklet here, and much higher resolution JPG individual images in both the Fritz Leiber CthulhuWho1 Flickr Collection (along with 212 more Fritz Leiber related images) at: , and in the CthulhuWho1 Robert Bloch Flickr collection (along with 161 more Robert Bloch related images) at:

I believe this nearly 47 year-old booklet is now well into the public domain; and I will remove it if a current copyright holder contacts me with a request to do so.

I am providing these scans freely from my collection as a tribute to Fritz Leiber and Robert Bloch.

Here’s the complete Symposium in PDF format:

    This is a fascinating document. I especially enjoyed the parts where Bloch put the proper perspective on Lovecraft’s work by showing how the horror induced by Lovecraft’s stories were directly related to the times when the stories were published, and by the experiences of those who lived in those times.
