Are you tired of the same old formulaic romance dance?

Are you sick of slap-dash slashers and predictable plot rehashers?

Are you at the end of your rope with sparkly vampires and sexy werewolves?

Have you had it up to here with silly space operas where the otherworldly setting is just a veneer for the randy crew to make out with aliens?

Is it time to drop the buddy cops and stop watching the detectives?

My friend, let the New Weird Tales refresh you!

You’ve tried the rest, now it’s time for the best. Welcome to an adventure like no other!

“Any scraps of meat as have been allowed to cure for a spell will do us right as rain, Yer Revered Snakeness,” the small ghoul interjected. “Robin Roberts at yer service. D’yer know, I once saw a mighty anaconda, or maybe it was a boa constrictor, brought Hammer and Tack from the chuffin' wild jungles of darkest Africa ter the bleedin' London Zoo. Watched it wrap itself 'round a rat, I did. The lydy standin' beside me near ter fainted. Lucky I was there ter catch 'er. Once I was Bobby she was safe, I watched that marvelous beast swalla the rat. Do your people enjoy rats, yer majesty? I prefer a well-aged 'aunch of 'uman meself, but rat is a bit of aw wite na and then.”

“Wot me old China Plate is tryin' ter say, your majesty, is that whatever victuals ya 'ave available will be jolly Robin Hood,” the large ghoul explained, doffing his newsboy cap, and bowing low. “Howsomever, we do enjoy our meat Mae West when it's been left ter sit aahhht for a spell.”
