B

Babson, Eunice. In “The Thing on the Doorstep,” a servant of Edward and Asenath Derby who, after being dismissed by Edward, appears to exact some kind of blackmail from him.

Baird, Edwin (1886–1957). First editor of WT (March 1923–April 1924). Baird was a writer for the popular magazines during the early decades of the century (HPL presumably read some of his stories in the Munsey magazines). Owner J.C.Henneberger picked Baird to edit WT, even though he seemed to have no particular expertise in weird fiction.

HPL revised the tale slightly for the prospective publication, but the plan never materialized. In early 1934 HPL put Baldwin in touch with Duane W.Rimel, who by coincidence lived in the same small town (Asotin, Washington). The two took turns reading HPL’s letters to each of them. Baldwin wrote two columns of news notes for the Fantasy Fan: “Side Glances” (April, May, September 1934) and “Within the Circle” (June, July, August, October, November 1934, January, February 1935), much of the informa-
