Product Description

When STRANGE TALES first appeared in 1931 as a pulp magazine, it was clearly something new. Edited by Harry Bates, as a companion to ASTOUNDING STORIES, it combined the supernatural horror and fantasy of WEIRD TALES with vigorous action plots. Had the Great Depression not intervened and killed it after seven issues, the whole history of fantastic fiction might have been different. STRANGE TALES rapidly attracted the most imaginative and capable writers of the day, including ROBERT E. HOWARD, CLARK ASHTON SMITH, HENRY S. WHITEHEAD, HUGH B. CAVE, JACK WILLIAMSON, AUGUST DERLETH, RAY CUMMINGS, and numerous others. Classics from its pages include Williamson's ôWolves of Darkness,ö Cave's ôMurgunstruum,ö and Derleth's Cthulhu Mythos tale, ôThe Thing That Walked On the Wind.ö

Certainly STRANGE TALES gave WEIRD TALES a serious run for its money.

Now it's back. You hold in your hands the first new issue of this legendary magazine since 1933. Compiled by ROBERT M. PRICE, the former editor of CRYPT OF CTHULHU and numerous Lovecraftian anthologies, STRANGE TALES offers the best in eldritch, scary, pulse-pounding entertainment. Featured in this issue are a great neo-pulp story by RICHARD LUPOFF; a Cthulhu Mythos story by Arkham House author GARY MYERS continuing the adventures of Clark Ashton Smith's sorcerer Eibon in old Hyperborea; an eerie tale of the King in Yellow by STEFFAN B. ALETTI; a tale of cosmic horror and adventure by ADRIAN COLE, author of the VOIDAL series; one of DARRELL SCHWEITZER'S Sekenre tales, continuing the story of the hero of THE MASK OF THE SORCERER; and even a short-short by JOHN GREGORY BETANCOURT, the author of the national bestseller, THE DAWN OF AMBER.
