Frank Belknap Long
Birth: Apr. 27, 1901
Death: Jan. 3, 1994

Author. Born in New York City, his writing career spanned seven decades. He is best remembered for his horror and science fiction short stories, including his early contributions to the Cthulhu Mythos. During his life, Long received the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement (at the 1978 World Fantasy Convention), the Bram Stoker Award for Lifetime Achievement (in 1987, from the Horror Writers of America), and the First Fandom Hall of Fame Award (1977). In 1921, his story "The Eye Above the Mantel" in the magazine, The United Amateur, caught the eye of writer H.P. Lovecraft, sparking a friendship and correspondence that would endure until Lovecraft's death in 1937. At his death, Long left behind a body of work that included twenty-five novels, 150 short stories, eight collections of short stories, three poetry collections, and numerous freelance magazine articles and comic book scripts. Among others "Woman From Another Planet," "The Ocean Leech," "The Dog-Eared God," "The Hounds of Tindalos," "A Visitor From Egypt," "The Horror From the Hills," "Mars Is My Destination," "It Was the Day of the Robot," "The Martian Visitors," "Odd Science Fiction," "The Dark Beasts," "A Man from Genoa and Other Poems," "The Electronic Frankenstein Affair," "Night Fear" and the biography "Howard Phillips Lovecraft: Dreamer on the Night Side." He died impoverished and his fans contributed over $3000 to have his name engraved upon the tombstone of his family plot.
