#1 [ELDRITCH-DARK] How old were you when you first read CAS, HPL, &c?

I thought it would be interesting to hear from anyone who can remember his or her age when first reading Smith, Lovecraft, Howard, and/or other favorite authors? These should be authors whom you still like. I mean to start a separate thread for citing authors who used to be favorites but aren't any more. The following ages are, for me, approximate. Tolkien: 11 Lewis: 12 M. R. James: 12 (one story, "Casting the Runes," in More Tales to Tremble By Lovecraft and Machen: 14 Charles Williams: 17 I hesitate to list Smith and Howard as favorite authors. Probably the first time I read either was at age 14, in Lin Carter's anthology The Young Magicians, with "The Maze of Maal Dweb" and "The Valley of the Worm." Certainly I went on to read numerous books by them.
