Bringing The Bizarre

Weird Tales is an American fantasy and horror fiction pulp magazine first published in March 1923.

It ceased its original run in September 1954, after 279 issues, but has since been revived.

The magazine was set up in Chicago by J.C. Henneberger, an ex-journalist with a taste for the macabre. The "sub-genre" pioneered by Weird Tales writers has come to be called weird fiction. The first editor published some of Weird Tales' most famous writers, including H. P. Lovecraft, C. M. Eddy, Jr., Clark Ashton Smith and Seabury Quinn.

Music: Henry Mancini, "A Shot In The Dark"
