‘Weird Tales’ Upgrades Website
In time for Halloween, the editors of Weird Tales debuted a newly enhanced version of their website, WeirdTalesMagazine.com.
According to a press release, the following elements have been added:
1. Downlaod a complete issue, free. For readers who’ve heard of Weird Tales but want a closer look before they plunk down their hard-earned cash, they’re offering — for a limited time only — a free, full PDF download of the July/August issue, chock full of strange sorcery, angelic gangster wars, and mecha-telepathic orphans. Featuring original fiction from Norman Spinrad, Nick Mamatas, and Karen Heuler; an in-depth interview with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola; a journey into H.P. Lovecraft’s dreamlands; an exclusive excerpt from Stephen Hunt’s steampunk epic The Court of the Air; and lots more!
2. ONE-MINUTE WEIRD TALES. Thanks to the wonders of YouTube, they’re launching a new series of embeddable micro-flash stories that unfold in 60 seconds or less! The debut piece, currently live, is by J.M. McDermott, author of the novel Last Dragon.
3. Sculptor Callie Badorrek of Monster Hollow Studios is offering six original, one-of-a-kind ceramic gargoyles and goblins for purchase at WeirdTalesMagazine.com.
4. INTERNATIONAL FICTION SPOTLIGHT. The current issue of Weird Tales is devoted to weird stories from authors living all around the world. Tune into WeirdTalesMagazine.com over the next several weeks to read web-exclusive posts from this new global generation of authors.
