Riches from a Truly Unique Magazine4 October 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Billed as "The Unique Magazine" when it first hit the stands in March 1923, WEIRD TALES was "a periodical that devoted its pages to stories about ghosts, ghouls, gnomes, murderers, monsters, vampires, and mad scientists," according to Marvin Kaye, the editor of this collection. The magazine didn't even try to please everyone, preferring to attract a loyal following that loved the weird, bizarre, and unusual. And it gathered an incredibly talented stable of writers, including Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, Richard Matheson, Clark Ashton Smith, and Theodore Sturgeon. If you don't know these names, you're missing out, so I advise you to get this book and become acquainted with them. Kaye included at least one story from every incarnation of WEIRD TALES up through 1987. There are tales from the famous authors but also less familiar works from WT's more obscure talents. Probably the only thing that would have made this tome cooler is if it included some of WEIRD TALES' wonderfully outrageous covers and interior art. But, even as it is, I highly recommend this collection of WEIRD TALES, which Kaye hailed as "the most important periodical devoted to imaginative fiction in the history of American literature." Was he right? I invite you to find out for yourself.

A lost read, now found and a return to happiness.19 September 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I had this book as a teen and it got lost in the move. Now years later, I have it again and am enjoying the weird tales so far. A return to nostalgia for me.
