Club of the Seven Dreamers, The
   A “hideous novel” conceived by HPL in March 1920 (see SL1.110); probably never begun. Possibly it was not intended to be a genuine novel but rather a series of short stories with different narrators— these being the “seven dreamers” of the title. If so, the conception would be somewhat similar to Poe’s plans for Tales of the Folio Club; in his preface to this volume (first printed in James A.Harrison’s collected edition of Poe [1902]), Poe declares that “The number of the club is limited to eleven.” One may also suspect the influence of John Osborne Austin’s More Seven Club Tales (1900), a book that HPL owned about strange happenings in Rhode Island. This slim volume contains seven stories, each narrated by a different individual, mostly figures from seventeenth-century Rhode Island. Only a few of the tales are genuinely weird, and even they are rather innocuous ghost stories; but HPL may have found the format suggestive.
