When the pulp magazine Weird Tales appeared on newsstands in 1923, it proved to be a pivotal moment in the evolution of speculative fiction. Living up to its nickname, “The Unique Magazine,” Weird Tales provided the first real venue for authors writing in the nascent genres of fantasy, horror, and science fiction. Weird fiction pioneers such as H. P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert Bloch, Catherine L. Moore, and many others honed their craft in the pages of Weird Tales in the 1920s and 1930s, and their work had a tremendous influence on later generations of genre authors. In The Unique Legacy of Weird Tales: The Evolution of Modern Fantasy and Horror, Justin Everett and Jeffrey Shanks have assembled an impressive collection of essays that explore many of the themes critical to understanding the importance of the magazine. This multi-disciplinary collection from a wide array of scholars looks at how Weird Tales served as a locus of genre formation and literary discourse community. There are also chapters devoted to individual authors—including Lovecraft, Howard, and Bloch—and their particular contributions to the magazine. As the literary world was undergoing a revolution and mass-produced media began to dwarf high-brow literature in social significance, Weird Tales managed to straddle both worlds. This collection of essays explores the important role the magazine played in expanding the literary landscape at a very particular time and place in American culture. The Unique Legacy of Weird Tales will appeal to scholars and aficionados of fantasy, horror, and weird fiction and those interested in the early roots of these popular genres.

“Beasts of the Southern Wild” meets Because of Winn Dixie in this inspiring story of hope. August “Auggie” Jones lives with her Grandpa Gus, a trash hauler, in a poor part of town. So when her wealthy classmate’s father starts the House Beautification Committee, it’s homes like Auggie’s that are deemed “in violation.” Auggie is determined to prove that she is not as run-down as the outside of her house might suggest. Using the kind of items Gus usually hauls to the scrap heap, a broken toaster becomes a flower; church windows turn into a rainbow walkway; and an old car gets new life as spinning whirligigs. What starts out as a home renovation project becomes much more as Auggie and her grandpa discover a talent they never knew they had—and redefine a whole town’s perception of beauty, one recycled sculpture at a time. Auggie’s talent for creating found art will remind readers that one girl’s trash really is another girl’s treasure.

Eerie Publications' horror magazines brought blood and bad taste to America's newsstands from 1965 through 1975. Ultra-gory covers and bottom-of-the-barrel production values lent an air of danger to every issue, daring you to look at (and purchase) them. The Weird of World of Eerie Publications introduces the reader to Myron Fass, the gun-toting megalomaniac publisher who, with tyranny and glee, made a career of fishing pocketbook change from young readers with the most insidious sort of exploitation. You'll also meet Carl Burgos, who, as editor of Eerie Publications, ground his axe against the entire comics industry. Slumming comic art greats and unknown hacks were both employed by Eerie to plagiarize the more inspired work of pre-Code comic art of the 1950s. Somehow these lowbrow abominations influenced a generation of artists who proudly blame career choices (and mental problems) on Eerie Publications. One of them, Stephen R. Bissette (Swamp Thing, Taboo, Tyrant), provides the introduction for this volume. Here's the sordid background behind this mysterious comics publisher, featuring astonishingly red reproductions of many covers and the most spectacularly creepy art.

A small New Hampshire town forms a new National Political Party: the Flake Party. Who gets slammed on their first day? Chances are, if you can think of it, it gets laid bare by this bunch of 'ordinary' people. Their Vice Presidential candidate has been buried for over 200 years: his body in New Rochelle, NY and his bones somewhere in England. But his spirit lives within these pages as the reader comes to know his innermost thoughts. Outrageous humor is the only thing that lets the viewer keep going through this irreverent gasp at the current political milieu. But this new party has answers to the problems, sort of. For instance, picture their proposed truthful version of a Clinton Library with a giant blue dress flying from the flagpole instead of the Stars and Stripes and you have just a hint of where this novel goes.

The author of The Secret Influence of the Moon explores the many strange and unexplained phenomena surrounding electromagnetism. Today, the use of electricity is so pervasive that our environment is permeated by both natural and artificial sources of electromagnetic energy—while we ourselves are electromagnetic beings. As we continue to pollute and thereby alter our electromagnetic environment, we are also altering ourselves. In particular, these changes infringe on the psychic side of our being. In Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions, author Louis Proud demonstrates how all things are connected by a vast electromagnetic web—a natural phenomenon that appears to have supernatural consequences. He examines ESP, poltergeist disturbances, psychokinesis, electric people, UFOs, and other paranormal phenomena from an electromagnetic perspective. He also reveals how the artificial, alien energies we've been introducing into our environment shape the way we experience the paranormal. Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions explores such questions as: Do human beings possess a magnetic sixth sense similar to that of homing pigeons? Are artificial electromagnetic fields, such as those emitted by power lines, gradually destroying our health? Can being struck by lightning or suffering a severe electric shock result in the development of psychic abilities? What do scientists make of the fact that ball lightning can pass through walls, enter rooms by squeezing through keyholes, and display seemingly intelligent behavior?

As a survivor of unspeakable brutality, the last thing Shailene Campbell wants is more violence, but being uniquely qualified to protect others from the horror she endured makes the choice unavoidable. But if she has to hunt down predatory psychopaths, then she's also going after the God who created the bloody world she inhabits. Silas "Mac" MacIlwane was a manager, teacher, and perpetrator of violence until his wife and son were viciously killed in a home invasion. Now he helps catch bad guys by profiling them for the FBI. When he picks up a trail of corpses left by a vigilante, however, he realizes he'd rather be sending murderers to hell than to court. When Campbell's and MacIlwane's paths cross, no one walks away unscathed.

The Dogshit Summer is a free short story. A woman's existence in a souring marriage and squalid conditions drives her to the brink of collapse until she runs into an old friend. This free story is a quick read. Goodreads review: "The first story Dogshit Summer is very atmospheric filled with a perfume of cigarettes, pinesol and dogshit mellowing on a hot, hazy, and humid summer's night. It is a story of bad choices, failures, and perceived dead ends. With your life's plan laid out what would you do if you were handed an application to get out of a purgatory that you helped create?" - T. Pearson

Harry Parker was probably the most important figure in American rowing of the past century. His heavyweight crews at Harvard topped the leagues more consistently than any other team (they won the Eastern Sprints regatta, against most of the top college crews, more than three times as often as their nearest rival). From the time they miraculously won the 1963 Harvard-Yale Race at the end of his first year at the helm, his varsity didn’t lose a race for six years, and they didn’t lose to Yale until the Reagan administration. He was the first US National Team coach, and oversaw five Olympic teams. He coached the sons of his great oarsmen from the 60’s and 70’s, and at age 70 was still putting the sons to shame on a bicycle, or running the steps of the Harvard Stadium. He was respected by all, revered and adored by his rowers, and yet no one seemed to know him. The persistent myth was that he hardly said a word, and that his powerful mystique alone made his oarsmen great and their boats go fast. Though a fundamentally compelling figure, Parker’s famous reticence means that few managed to spend much time close to him. Since he made no attempt to explain himself, legends abound: he never got older; he could control the weather; he could walk on water. The Sphinx of the Charles: A Year at Harvard with Harry Parker takes the reader not only inside the Harvard boathouse, but into the coaching launch with Parker. We see how he coached—how many words he actually uttered—as he guided his team through a year of training, and hear about his life in the sport. We see a paradox: Parker remained remarkably constant over the last forty-five years, yet he constantly evolved, changed his style, and used every means at his disposal to build champion crews. The Sphinx of the Charles goes inside the rowing world in a way hasn’t been done before, putting the reader in the passenger seat next to one of the most successful coaches of all time. Parker is a historical icon, part of a tradition that goes back to the beginning of intercollegiate athletics in America. His story needs to be told. The Sphinx of the Charles is fundamentally a chronicle of a year with the Harvard team and a profile of Harry Parker as he was, five years before his death: comfortable in his position as elder and master of the sport, reflective but not nostalgic, aged but nearly impervious to aging. It is driven by Ayer’s own observations of Parker from his seven years of coaching and training at the Harvard boathouse, but especially from one academic year, 2008-9. he shadowed him for a few days every week from September to June, observing practices both on and off the water, and interacting with the team. The present tense of the narrative reflects this immediacy, but also the sense that Parker has endured and continues to endure. And though The Sphinx of the Charles is not a biography in the usual sense, Parker’s life and career were rich and extraordinary and they must be explored.
