Weird Tales April 1924

Lovecraft fans [the ones that were] got back to back tales in early 1924. As I posted yesterday, “Rats in the Walls”  made its appearance in March, and this month gives us “The White Ape” a.k.a “The Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and his Family,” one of the better stories that implies some ape-on-lady action.  Unsurprisingly, there is a lot of cultural discussion about missing links and found links and evolution circulating in the period.

This issue also concludes one of my least-favorite serials, “The Transparent Ghost,” which once again shows why humor and horror can be a bad, bad mixture. At least until the 1980s came around.

Also, since I forgot to post on this in Labor Day, here are the almighty Dead Kennedys bringing us their version of Johnny Paycheck’s “Take this Job and Shove It”:

Also, to quote one of my New Orleans friends, “Fuck David Allan Coe.”
