Book Synopsis

Weird Tales—the Unique Magazine celebrates a full century of brilliant, evocative, and genre-breaking storytelling with this book of new and classic works. Here you'll encounter landmark tales of the madness of cosmic horror, sword and sorcery adventure, eerie occult detective mysteries, and much more. Legendary masters such as H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Richard Matheson, Tennessee Williams, C.L. Moore, Isaac Asimov & Frederik Pohl are joined by outstanding writers, essayists, and poets of the modern era such as Victor Lavalle, Scott Sigler, R.L. Stine, Laurell K. Hamilton, Keith R.A. DeCandido, James Aquilone, Anne Walsh Miller, and many others.

100 Years of Weird is a treasure trove of dark imaginings, and it shows, in scope and variety, the magic and wonder of stories that belong nowhere else but in the pages of Weird Tales.

The magazine was born in 1923 as a place for tales too odd, too dark, too outside-the-box to fit under any standard genre label. But they found a home in Weird Tales. From the outer-darkness horrors of Cthulhu to the clashing sword of Conan the Barbarian, Weird Tales not only pioneered new ground but established sub-genres that have influenced generations of writers and still do that. Echoes of our kind of weird can be heard and felt in modern literature, movies, TV, comics, and games. They have become cornerstones for both pop culture and open doors that have allowed countless writers the chance to go beyond known limits and write from the deepest and darkest parts of their creative souls.

Come with us on a journey through the first century of wonderful weirdness!
