Weird Tales Letter

Here’s one of the many unique items that will be in the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction being held at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.

This is a letter from Weird Tales Editor Farnsworth Wright to author Greye La Spina, dated June 5, 1925. It has great content regarding Weird Tales and La Spina’s fiction, along with a rare signature by Wright (he stopped signing his letters a few years later due to the advance of Parkinson’s disease). La Spina’s penciled notes are on the left side and at top right. Bob acquired this from La Spina’s estate.

The catalog and all images will be available on our website ( in mid-March, and we’ll also have instructions there for how you can place absentee bids if you can’t make it to the show. It won’t be a live bidding option, though, so not as good as if you can attend.
