Asbury, Herbert
   (1891–1963).
   American journalist and author of The Gangs of New York(1928) whose horror anthology Not at Night!(Macy-Macius/The Vanguard Press, 1932) contains HPL’s “The Horror at Red Hook.” The volume proved to be pirated from several anthologies edited by Christine Campbell Thomson. For a time WT(from which most of the stories derived) threatened to sue the publisher (HPL gave his support to the suit provided it would involve no financial expenditure on his part; see SL2.260–61), but the publisher eventually withdrew the book from circulation.
