Weird Tales 360 Arrives This Week
Weird 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:
