Pabodie, Frank H. In At the Mountains of Madness, the professor of engineering who devises the special drill used to conduct geologic borings on the Miskatonic Antarctic Expedition.

Pawtuxet Valley Gleaner, Astronomy Articles for. Seventeen known articles, published in 1906; rpt. First Writings: Pawtuxet Valley Gleaner (Necronomicon Press, 1976; rev. ed. 1986).

The articles appeared as follows: “The Heavens for August” (July 27); “The Skies of September” (August 31); “Is Mars an Inhabited World?” (September 7); “Is There Life on the Moon?” (September 14); “An Interesting Phenomenon” (September 21); “October Heavens” (September 28); “Are There Undiscovered Planets?” (October 5); “Can the Moon Be Reached by Man?” (October 12); “The Moon” (October 19); [untitled] (October 26); “The Sun” (November 2); “The Leonids” (November 9); “Comets” (November 16); “December Skies” (November 30); “The Fixed Stars” (December 7); “Clusters-Nebulae” (December 21); “January Heavens” (December 28).

These are—aside from HPL’s letter to the editor of the Providence Sunday Journal (June 3, 1906)—the earliest published works by HPL, although contemporaneous with the astronomy articles for the [Providence] Tribune (1906–08), which commenced only a few days after the first of the Gleaner articles. The paper was a rural weekly published in the village of Phenix, R.I. (a community now incorporated into the town of West Warwick); HPL remarks of it: “The name ‘Phillips’ is a magic word in Western Rhode Island, & the Gleaner was more than willing to print & feature anything from Whipple V.Phillips’ grandson” (SL 1.40). The articles range from surveys of the celestial phenomena for the coming month to discussions of provocative questions regarding the heavens: HPL here maintains that Percival Lowell’s belief in the artificiality of the Martian “canals” is “not only possible, but probable,” although in later columns
