Weiss, Henry George


Weiss, Henry George
   (1898–1946)
   Canadian-born poet and essayist who wrote weird and science fiction tales under the pseudonym Francis Flagg. Weiss corresponded with HPL sporadically during the period 1930–37; at this time he had communist leanings and may have contributed to HPL’s gradual shift toward socialism. He wrote an HPL-influenced story, “The Distortion out of Space” (WT, August 1934); also a poem, “To Howard Phillips Lovecraft” (WT, March 1938; rpt. Marginalia). See also The Night People(1947), a science fiction novel.
