Petaja, Emil
   (1915–2000)
   Science fiction fan and writer of Finnish ancestry residing in Montana, and correspondent of HPL. Petaja came in touch with HPL in late 1934. The next year he proposed teaming with Duane W.Rimel to form a fan magazine, The Fantaisiste’s Mirror, that would resume serializing HPL’s “Supernatural Horror in Literature” from the point it had left off in the defunct Fantasy Fan, but the magazine never materialized. He and HPL continued corresponding until the latter’s death. In later years Petaja contributed to Amazing Storiesand WT,and wrote several science fiction and fantasy novels, some based upon Finnish legendry.
