“Does Vulcan Exist?“


“Does Vulcan Exist?“
   Essay, purportedly by HPL, dating to 1906. Printed by August Derleth in H.P.L: A Memoir (1945). Derleth claimed that this item was part of or an entire astronomy column published in the Providence Journal;but HPL had no column in the Journal. It is more likely that this is an unpublished juvenile manuscript that Derleth had come upon when going through HPL’s papers and that he assumed it had appeared in the Journal(probably the only Providence newspaper of which he was aware). From internal evidence, the text seems to be by HPL and probably does date to around 1906.
