August Derleth's daughter and Arkham House Publisher Dead
April was born Aug. 9, 1954. Her father, August Derleth, was an author and
co-founded Arkham House Publishers in 1939 with author Donald Wandrei for
the sole purpose of publishing H.P. Lovecraft. After August Derleth's death
in 1971, both April and her brother Walden became owners of Arkham House. In
1994, April became majority stockholder, president and CEO of Arkham House
and remained in that capacity until her passing.
Such a young age! I loved many books published by Arkham House.
