In 1970, with the publication of Thirty Years of Arkham House, Derleth predicted that Arkham House had entered its fourth and “very probably last” decade. Derleth was a writer and had no intention of becoming only a publisher. Derleth noted he was “Far from growing rich on the proceeds of Arkham House”. He continues, “…the fact is that in no single year since its founding have the earnings of Arkham House met the expenses, so that it has been necessary for my personal earnings to shore up Arkham House finances. Despite this prediction, Derleth continued a vigorous publishing schedule through 1970 and into 1971. S.T. Joshi notes later in Sixty Years of Arkham House that Derleth’s prediction was actually a prediction of his own demise sometime in the next decade, thus too the demise of AH. August Derleth died on July 4, 1971. He was 62 years old.


ダーレスは偉大なり!!
