Can you imagine having to move all of Forrest Ackerman’s stuff? 

No thank you!

Seriously .... if anyone is working for great pulps, I would highly recommend you visit Todd’s eBay store or Pulpfest, because he has a lot a rare pulps, graded accurately, and priced very fairly.

Probably overpaid, but wanted the book ever since I saw it on here.

Weird Tales, Jun 1925

I doubt this many have been together since they were printed. (shrug)

Nice trio, Todd - if you want to move one of those with nice paper (I won’t be too picky on the grade), please send me a PM.

Those early WT’s are such toughies...

Thank Dwight!

And feel free to send me want-lists.  I have a lot of stock that's not on Ebay yet.

My eBay store is: comic_and_pulp_heroes

And 8 of the 9 Oriental Stories as well, and they're scarcer than the Magic Carpets. :whistle:lol

I hope you can make it next year, it's a great show!

Sure thing, Steve.  Yep, two of the three are for sale, just keeping one for my collection.  And I have three other 1925 issues available right now too.  I'll PM you.

Just arrived. Since I dipped my toe in the pulpwater, i've done some looking around on what it would take to land a nice red logo Weird Tales. This one came up in the wheelhouse.

I love Otis Adelbert Kline and there is a 1st CAS story in here as well. What's funny is that, in hand , this is crazier than what it looked like at first. When I opened the front leaf, it made the sound I've heard on a thousand 70's books that were liberated from dealer bundles... the sound of the ink separating from page to page from being sticky off the press and held together with the pressure of the bundle. I stopped leafing through it so that sound can be spread across the next generation (thumbsu

Great description,I could almost smell it!

Very happy for you,what a stunner!

Found at my LCS today.  All 3 have parts of a Burroughs serial.  One is Barsoom, one is Venus, and one is Tarzan.

With so much of my comic collecting being focused on GA comics with cool covers, who am I to resist the call of the pulp? Presenting my first pulp purchase, though this one I actually did buy it to read the story and not just admire the cover :)
