Free issue of Weird Tales

While I remember, for a limited time you can download the last issue of Weird Tales as PDF for free. It will set you back 13MB bandwidth and a couple of hours of your life to read it, which is a pretty good deal if you ask me.

Not as good as the real dead-tree object, though, I love the way the magazine is floppy, and falls open on the desk without a fight so I need not touch it to read it, and my fingers are always too dry and I have trouble gripping and turning the pages.

But you're not downloading it for floppiness. You're downloading it for stories.


  1. I like the floppiness of the dead tree version you sent me too. I think that's one of the reasons I love getting books in trade paperback version. Floppiness factor.

  2. I'll always prefer hardbacks, but a book with a spine thin enough that just falls open on the desk is a lovely thing.
