Resumo:

Weird Tales, the acknowledged leader of pulp magazine fantasy from 1923 to 1954, provided many of the genre's wildest and wooliest stories. Here are 100 of the magazine's greatest, written by the best and brightest writers of macabre tales of horror. Every story is guaranteed to bewilder, disturb, and excite. Witness H.P. Lovecraft's tales of extradimensional terror; discover the worlds of Clark Ashton Smith, which in Lovecraft's words are "a universe of remote and paralyzing fright"; then explore Henry S. Whitehead's quest into the spectral mysteries of the West Indies. The distinguished contributors to this collection challenged traditional notions of fiction by writing tales in ways previously unexplored. Seabury Quinn's blend of the detective story and terror in his accounts of occult investigator Jules de Grandin, E. Hoffman Price's retelling of Eastern myths and legends, and Manly Wade Wellman's tales of Souther folklore are all groundbreaking examples of invention through experimentation. Although Weird Tales is renowned primarily for its short stories and novellas, the magazine also introduced its readers to "sudden," or shorter-than-short, fiction. For example, consider the contrast between Florence Crow's vampire in traditional guise in "The Nightmare Road" and that of Richard F. Searight's in "The Sealed Casket." Also discover how Clark Ashton Smith in "The Last Incantation" and H.P. Lovecraft in "The Doom That Came to Sarnath" intensified the psychological setting of their stories by cultivating a stylized prose form appropriate for their arcane horrors. 100 Wild Little Weird Tales is a superb selection of Weird Tales' best and most bizarre. It proves that good things -- or in the case of weird fiction, bad things -- come in small packages.
