Speaking of the Mad Arab.... here is another quote from the Master himself

In a letter to Frank Belknap
Dated
1/26/1921

" At the risk of boring you, I will enclose my latest- just finished and typed- The Nameless City. This had its basis in a dream, which in turn was probably caused by contemplation of the peculiar suggestiveness of a phrase in Dunsanys Book Of Wonder- "the unreverberate blackness of the abyss." The character of the mad Arab Alhazred is FICTITIOUS. The lines are mine- written especially for the story- and Abdul Alhazred is a psuedonym I took when I was about five years old and crazy about the Arabian Nights. I hardly know what to think of this story- you are the first to see it- but I certainly put enough work into it. I tore up two beginnings, only hitting the right atmosphere the third time, and destroyed or rather rearranged one conclusion."

so you see... the mad arab was completely made up....
