The Weird Tradition
Discussion focuses on the unique group of writers who created horror and dark fantasy fiction for Weird Tales, Unknown, Astounding, and other pulp magazines. Included are such leading lights as Robert E. Howard, Manly Wade Wellman, Fritz Leiber, H.P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith and Frank Belknap Long.
The Weird Tradition also hosts THE DEEP ONES reading group, which discusses a short story beginning on Wednesday each week. A listing of all discussions to date can be found here.
