Weird Tales 360 Arrives This Week

Sunday, October 14th, 2012 | Posted by John ONeill

weird-tales-360-smallWeird Tales 360,  the first issue helmed by new editor Marvin Kaye, is scheduled to ship this Friday, October 19.

It’s an auspicious and entirely appropriate number, I think. After changing direction several times over the last few years, Weird Tales has now turned 360-degrees and returned to where it started: publishing classic weird fiction.

The theme of the first Kaye issue is “The Elder Gods,” and the table of contents makes it clear that he is whole-heartedly embracing the Lovecraftian fiction that helped make Weird Tales one of the most sought-after magazines of the pulp era:
