Eshbach, Lloyd Arthur
   (b. 1910)
   Science fiction writer and publisher from Reading, Pa., and correspondent of HPL (1935–37?). Since 1931 Eshbach had published several stories in the science fiction pulps, but in early 1935 he was beginning a general magazine called The Galleonand asked HPL to contribute. HPL sent a story and two sonnets from Fungi from Yuggoth, but only “Background” (May-June 1935) and “The Quest of Iranon” (July-August 1935) were published before the magazine changed focus and became a regional Pennsylvania magazine; accordingly, Eshbach returned “Harbour Whistles,” which he had also accepted. After World War II Eshbach successively founded two small presses in the fantasy field, Fantasy Press and Polaris Press. He also published a collection of his science fiction stories ( The Tyrant of Time,1955) and an anthology of essays on science fiction writing ( Of Worlds Beyond, 1964).
