In the 1920s, the popular fiction published in pulp fiction magazines had become formulaic. But one publisher, J.C. Hennenberger, had a dream for a "unique magazine" that would distinguish itself by refusing the formulaic: Weird Tales, the legendary "pulp" that published such writers as H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, and Robert E. Howard. This presentation and Q&A by print and literary historian Dr. Jason Ray Carney (CNU) will briefly survey Weird Tales' history as well as highlight the unique sub-genres it became known for: cosmic horror, sword and sorcery, space opera, and the tale of occult detection.
