The Secret Origins of Weird Tales
Pulp historian John Locke will share stories from his upcoming book, a revisionist history of the disastrous beginnings (1923-24) of Weird Tales magazine, a period of tumult and controversy unprecedented in the pulps, before or since. He will reveal mysteries which have been suppressed by a code of silence for almost a century now. Who were Henneberger and Lansinger, the founders of the magazine, and what strange forces joined them? How did first editor Edwin Baird become the wild man of the pulps? What lay buried in haunted second editor Farnsworth Wright’s past that he never dared speak of? What was the uncontrollable “reorganization” that sucked legendary horror author H.P. Lovecraft into a vortex he barely understood? Why did world-famous magician Harry Houdini suddenly appear on the covers of the obscure magazine, and just as suddenly disappear? Finally, how did an all-out war behind the scenes at the magazine lead to the long peace of the Wright years?
Among the hundreds of pulps that will be in the Glenn Lord estate auction being held on Friday night, April 6, 2018, at the upcoming Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 6-8, 2018, at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center) are 18 issues of Fiction House’s Action Stories. Most of them feature stories by Robert. E. Howard, including these two. The one on the left is December 1935 and on the right is January 1937.
I hope everyone has be intrigued with the images and information regarding the Glenn Lord estate auction coming up at the next Windy City.
Among the hundreds of pulps that will be in the Glenn Lord estate auction being held on Friday night, April 6, 2018, at the upcoming Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 6-8, 2018, at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center) are 20 issues of Fiction House’s Fight Stories. Most of them feature stories by Robert. E. Howard, including these two, as is noted on the covers. The one on the left is June 1930 and on the right is December 1931.
Among the over 80 issues of Weird Tales (most featuring stories or poems by Robert E. Howard, and many with work from H.P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith) that will be in the Glenn Lord estate auction being held on Friday night, April 6, 2018, at the upcoming Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 6-8, 2018, at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center) are these two. The one on the left is the July 1925 issue, featuring Howard’s first story for that pulp — “Spear and Fang,” And as the cover for the issue on the right (dated April 1926) proclaims, Howard’s story “Wolfshead” is in that one.

Here’s one of them — the December 1932 issue, featuring a great J. Allen St. John cover for Otis Adelbert Kline’s “Buccaneers of Venus.” Of course, the issue is of particular interest to REH fans, as it also features his “Phoenix on the Sword,” the first published adventure of Conan.
