From the Guardian: news that a long-lost H. P. Lovecraft manuscript has surfaced. This one is of particular interest to magicians. It's a piece Harry Houdini asked Lovecraft to ghostwrite (a particularly appropriate term) for him; the subject is "The Cancer of Superstition." After Houdini died in 1926, Lovecraft abandoned the project because Houdini's widow Bess was no longer interested in pursuing it.
The 31-page manuscript lay unthought-of until a private collector came across it as s/he was examining a new purchase of magic memorabilia. Potter and Potter Auctions will offer it for sale soon; it may go for as much as $40,000. Here's a link to the auction catalog.
