WEIRDBOOK back issues. WEIRDBOOK ELEVEN and WEIRDBOOK TWELVE are still in print. These
are regular size (64 pages, Sh x 11 inches in size). ELEVEN features fiction by Brian
Lumley, Eddy Bertin, Charles R. Saunders, H. Warner Munn, Basil Wells, George Wetzel,
Darrell Schweitzer, etc, with art by Roy Krenkel (the cover, which features a nude witch-
woman surrounded by fantasy creatures), Stephen E. Fabian, Gene Day, and others. TWELVE
features two long novelettes by L. Sprague de Camp and H. Warner Munn, with short tales by
Eddy Bertin, Basil Wells, Janet Fox, Paul Collins, Darrell Schweitzer, Scott Home,
and others. The front cover is a new "fantasy nude" by Fabian; back cover is by Gene Day,
along with interiors by Day, Garrison, Hjort, Fulkerson, and others. Each issue
presents a hitherto unpublished poem by Robert E. Howard. PRICE $3.00 each.
WEIRDBOOK previously was published in 32-page issues, now priced at $1 if available. As
this is being written, TWO, THREE and FIVE are OUT OF PRINT, and it is almost certain that
ONE will also be out of print by the time this advertisement appears. FOUR and SIX are
nearing O.P. status, but will probably still be available. SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE, and TEN
should be in print yet for some time. They include tales by Howard, Munn, Wells, Home,
Schweitzer, James Wade, Wade Wellman, and many many others, with artwork by A. B. Cox,
Judy Fulkerson, Jim Garrison, Denis Tiani, and so forth. PRICE: $1.00 each.
HOLLOW FACES, MERCILESS MOONS is a "special issue" of 96 pages plus covers. Contents are all
new stories by William Scott Home and all new art by Stephen E. Fabian. SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW said: William Scott Home writes weird, often bizarre, violent (yet curiously static)
fiction. Vivid, often boring, often electrifying material. . And Steve Fabian has done over
a dozen drawings — evocative, in his most graphic style — some of them full-page. The
book is 8% x 11, offset, on white paper, heavy white cover stock, about 98 pages. Worth
the money as entertainment and keeping value.
PRICE: paper cover edition, $5.00 hard cover collectors edition, $15.00
THE GOTHIC HORROR AND OTHER WEIRD TALES is another special issue, this time of 64 pages
plus covers, devoted to stories by George T. Wetzel, most reprinted from little magazines,
with one entirely new novelette, THE PIRATE OF SHELL CASTLE, which has received commendations
from several readers. Of this, SCIENCE FICTION REVIEW says: (These)... books are printed
in the same format as the magazine, 8% x 11, which makes the artwork look very nice indeed.
Wetzel is best known as one of the real pioneers of Lovecraft scholarship, but he has
written a small amount of fiction over the years. He has a polished style and a
definite talent for imagery, but I find most of his shorter work fragmentary and
underdeveloped. One novelet in this book of course isn't, but the others are
pleasant, if minor stuff. Very readable. The eight full-page drawings (including the
covers) are by Tim Kirk and are worth the price of the book all by themselves!
PRICE: paper cover edition, $4.00 hard cover collectors edition, $13.50
STILL AVAILABLE from WEIRDBOOK is the collection TOADSTOOL WINE, which features samples from
six magazines --- FANTASY § TERROR, M00NBR0TH, SPACE £ TIME, WHISPERS, WEIRDBOOK,
and WYRD. FOUR of these are still publishing, and a fifth has changed title and format,
since publication of TOADSTOOL WINE in 1975. Excellent covers by Lee Brown Coye and Fabian,
introductory article by Fritz Leiber, and MUCH MUCH MORE. PRICE: $2.95.
