    This may be the best Weird Tales collection I ve read yet It contains a great selection of the best authors of the era and some of the best stories I ve read yet The only other collection I ve loved quite this much was Weird Tales 32 Unearthed Terrors I m only being extra hard on my story ratings because I expect so much of Weird Tales Anthologies in general

    Marvin Kaye s Weird Tales The Magazine That Never Dies anthology from 1988 takes a slightly different tack than its earlier sister volume, Weird Tales 32 Unearthed Terrors Whereas the editors of that earlier collection chose to select one story from each year of the magazine s celebrated 32 year run 1923 54 , Kaye has decided here to not just limit himself to the

    Excellent pulp reprint Great selection of stories from an amazing pulp magazine Recommended

    Admittedly a mixed bag, but an amazing mixed bag filled with the most bizarre stories I can think of There s a kind of poetry and consistency to how demented the writing in each of these is In no way perfect, and the quality of the writing varies widely, but that is sort of the fun of it Besides, one of the authors is named Rex Dolphin As a bonus, each of the stories has a

    As with any anthology, this particular collection of Weird Tales stories is a mixed bag, depending on the tastes of the reader There reside, between these two cardboard covers, tales that are brilliant, others that are dreadful, and the rest just OK This particular collection gets bumped up an additional star from 3 to 4 because of the introductions to each story and the

    Gives a nice background on the magazine a great introduction for those getting started Excellent stories by early writers keep in mind this was published in the 80s so while it covers the majority of the history its missing the recent stuff

    Whew Two months and 570 pages laterI went into this because of my love for Lovecraft, the most prolific Weird Tales contributor of them all, and what I found was an interesting mishmash of good and bad stories The editor chose stories not based on whether they were good but rather whether they had an interesting backstorywhich sometimes backfires This was NOT a best of collection.


  8. says:

    This is a bit of an odd one, by virtue of it s source material Weird Tales first started publication in the early 1920s, predating our modern perceptions of genre fiction As a result this anthology, which draws from the original Weird Tales magazine run as well as it s subsequent revivals, presents an eclectic assortment of fantasy stories, tales of supernatural horror, and stor

    Weird Tales is a 582 page book, Short stories from some of the greats such as, Ray Bradbury, L Sprague Decamp, H.G Wells, Bram Stroker, Edgar Allen Poe is just a few of the great writers that you will find in this book.There is 44 Stories in the book they all appeared in the Weird Tales Magazine from days gone past.My favorite story in this book is HE by H.P Lovecraft which I will agree with the s

    I read this over the course of 11 months, so I cant really write a coherent review The spread of the stories is really wide Some are great, some are unreadable Surprisingly, the Lovecraft and Poe stories they included were both awful But hey, I imagine this is a representative sample of Weird Tales stories Classic experience.
