Fans Urged to Support Postage Stamp Issue Commemorating H P Lovecraft

The american author Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) had a loyal but relatively small following during his lifetime but, since his death the writer has gained widespread recognition as one of the most innovative authors of the 20th century.

Lovecraft's horror works focused on the possibilities presented by the emerging sciences of his era and envisioning a human race controlled by forces in the universe beyond its understanding.

Lovecraft was a keen philatelist in his private life but, to date, he has only ever been featured on a set of unofficial "cinderella" stamps produced by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society. So now fans of the author are being encouraged to actively campaign for the United States Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee to consider an official USPS stamp issue commemorating the 125th anniversary of Lovecraft's birth in 2015.

To add your weight to the campaign for a Lovecraft stamp issue write to the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee, c/o Stamp Development, US Postal Service, 475 L'Enfant Plaza SW, Room 3300, Washington DC 20260-3501.
