Edmond Hamilton

Lovecraft had mixed comments about Hamilton. He did say, "(2 Sept 1931) ... Hamilton has a few clever ideas, but uses the same plot over and over again ... (19 March 1934) ... Hamilton has infinite talent despite the routine stuff he turns out under commercial pressures - few stories have impressed me more than his "Monster Gods of Marmuth...".
Below is a copy of his 1951 Crest edition of City at World's End.

It starts:

Kensington realized afterward that it was like death. You knew you were going to die someday, but you didn't believe it. He had known that there was danger of the long dreaded atomic war beginning with a sneak punch, but he hadn't really believed it.
