    1. I read half of this and gave up - not that it's bad but it's definitely not my kind of thing. This iteration of WEIRD TALES publication history seems to have embraced the - completely valid - vision of the magazine as a forum for dark fantasy/urban fantasy/fantasy and not just horror/supernatural stories. Which, as I said, is fine and historically accurate (no matter how some may associate the title totally with Lovecraft and his circle).But, to be truthful, those type of stories, especially in [...]

    2. A man discovers a vending machine that dispenses real body parts. A boy's father is killed in the mines daily, but keeps reporting in for work. A sacrificial virgin slays the dragon but fails to find the release she was expecting. A group of drunken revelers attracts the attention of the Wild Hunt. That last was pretty good, but most of the other stories struck me as typical, and not particularly weird by any definition. The best one is about a bear that moves into a suburban neighborhood and ha [...]

    3. Bought this to help get a feel for the type of thing the magazine publishes, and thought where better to start than the best of the newer issues? To be honest, I was a little disappointed, as the stories on offer were the typical thing you'd find in most horror magazines or anthologies, but without the violence, gore and sex. However, all are well written, and I'm sure there'll be a few everyone can enjoy in there. My personal favourite was What Happened When Tammy Brookmeyer Sold her House. In [...]

    4. Like a Weird Tales magazine issue without the interviews, essays, or artwork, this collection of weird stories is fun but a little spare. I find the other content of the magazine rounds out the weird tale experience. Having a collection of just the stories is a bit like going to a buffet and eating only one variety of cheese.Bob Bodey's Body Parts by William Markly O'Neal was the most gripping, jaw-dropping story of "eww" I've read in a while. Bloody brains, indeed.

    5. In my opinion, this book is a series of gibberish written to fill a page. The first story was good. The second was okay, the third entry wasn't even a story. The next I didn't bother to finish reading. Good thing it was a library book - I could throw it back in their bin and only have lost time not money.

    6. This novel wasn't exactly what I expected, but it was still great. Only a few of the stories had real horror in them, but several had some very good gruesome details like the one titled, "Bodey's Body Parts" or something similar. It's not scary but definitely graphic. I'd definitely read it again and suggest it to anyone who likes weird. Just weird.
