Bullen, John Ravenor
   (1886–1927)
   Canadian poet and amateur journalist. He possibly introduced HPL to the Transatlantic Circulator (an Anglo-American correspondence group) in 1921. Some of his poetry later appeared in HPL’s Conservative. When Bullen died, his mother asked HPL to prepare an edition of Bullen’s poetry, and HPL did so. The Recluse Press (W.Paul Cook) published White Firein 1927 (a second edition was printed in 1929 but never bound). HPL’s preface is a revised version of his essay “The Poetry of John Ravenor Bullen” ( United Amateur,September 1925).
