Weird Tales

The original incarnation of pulp magazine Weird Tales was produced between March 1923 and September 1954. The magazine first published works by such notable authors as H.P. Lovecraft, Robert Bloch, and Robert E. Howard. Weird Tales was reincarnated several times after it's initial demise. One of the more successful versions debuted in 1988. Some covers from that run of the magazine are presented below. It featured stories by some of the top names in the fantasy and horror field plus covers and illustrations by some top-notch artists.
