The WEIRD MENACE titles are unquestionably the most desirable of all the pulp genres! Few of the stories have been reprinted in anthologies and can be found only in their original form. Zeroing in on the most grotesque murder methods, the tales are lurid beyond belief, which is where their fantastic appeal lies. Wild, over-the-top covers feature hunchbacks with branding irons, gnarled scientists gripping hypo needles, midgets with blowtorches, and legions of bizarre, hooded cultists--all lusting perversely over their fright-wracked prey. Beautiful, busty women were flogged, flayed, and flagellated by sadistic psychos, twisted mercilessly in rusting torture machines, and manacled to bloody operating tables--always stripped to the minimum allowed on vintage newsstands (although interior art frequently tore away even the last few strands of modesty).

This list offers a huge selection of HORROR, TERROR, DIME MYSTERY and other titles that specialized in weird menace, including numerous rare, difficult-to-locate one-shots and short-run publications--plus a bonus collection of hard-boiled gangster pulps that didn't make it on the previous edition. Let us know what you'd like to see included next time.
