Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Dime Mystery, August 1934
Time for another Weird Menace cover, this time from one of the leading magazines in the genre, DIME MYSTERY, featuring a suitably lurid cover by Walter Baumhofer and stories by three of the top authors, Wyatt Blassingame, Hugh B. Cave, and Arthur Leo Zagat.
I've given some serious thought to doing a Weird Menace anthology for Rough Edges Press, writing one of the stories myself and opening up the rest of the book to submissions from anyone who's interested. I'd want period stories, because I'm not sure the genre would work in any other era than the Thirties. But I'm not sure there's enough of an audience for such a book or writers who would want to contribute. Still, I'm intrigued by the idea. If you have any thoughts on the matter, feel free to post in the comments or email me directly.
