"In the 1950s, Metcalfe discussed with August Derleth the possibility of having a third collection of his fiction published by Arkham House. This collection (to be entitled The Feasting Dead and other Stories) never appeared, but Arkham House did publish The Feasting Dead as a chapbook. Derleth also included several of Metcalfe's stories in his anthologies. Evelyn Scott died in August 1963, after suffering from heart disease, a lung tumor, and mental health problems. Metcalfe suffered a breakdown after her death and was hospitalized. On his release in October 1964 he returned to England, where he died on 31 July 1965 as the result of a fall." (from Wikipedia)
