“It’s alive! Alive!!!!!”

Weirdbook is coming back to life. New editor Doug Draa has done an immense job of resurrecting Paul Ganley’s classic weird fantasy mag.

Weirdbook #31 will be the first issue since 1997, and it’s slated for an October release from its new publisher Wildside Press.

On the left is a look at the front cover by Dusan Kostic. Click for a bigger version.

The back cover (right) will be a piece by the great Stephen E. Fabian, who did all the covers for the original WB run.

This issue is sort of a bridge between the magazine’s past and its future.

Here’s a look at the Table of Contents for Weirdbook #31.

That cover is gorgeous.

You stole my thunder, John! The instant I saw that cover, I knew I wanted to do a quick article about it. Of course I was happy to see a Stephen Fabian piece, but moving to a color cover I think was a great idea.


Insert “Shut up and take my money!” picture meme!

Looking on the website, are they avail .pdf and .epub for tablets?
