LETTER FROM ASTOUNDING STORIES EDITOR DESMOND HALL TO REH, NOVEMBER 16, 1933
Rejection letter from Hall to REH, on Astounding letterhead, written shortly after Street & Smith took over Astounding (their first issue was October 1933).
The story, “The Valley of the Lost,” remained unprinted until it appeared in the Magazine of Horror #13, Summer 1966.
