Quinn, Seabury [Grandin]


Quinn, Seabury [Grandin]
   (1889–1969)
   American writer and editor; prolific author of tales about psychic detective Jules de Grandin in WT HPL enjoyed his early tale, “The Phantom Farmhouse” ( WT,October 1923), but felt other tales to be formula-ridden hackwork, as evinced in a delightful parody of Quinn’s work (see SL4.162–63). HPL first met Quinn at Wilfred B.Talman’s apartment in New York City on July 6, 1931 (see SL3.382); they met again in early January 1936, during HPL’s last New York visit. Quinn is parodied as “Teaberry Quince” in “The Battle That Ended the Century” (1934). His best Jules de Grandin stories were collected in The Phantom-Fighter (Arkham House, 1966); another collection is Is the Devil a Gentleman? (Mirage Press, 1970).
