    Description

    Strange Tales #1 and 2 Group (Utopian Publications Ltd., 1946) Condition: Average VG/FN. Included are copies of the only two issues of this digest-format British publication, listed as "Strange Tales of the Mysterious and Supernatural" on the interiors. The copy of #1 that is included is a rare first-state copy, all of which were withdrawn from distribution due to the cover featuring a bare-breasted woman, and subsequently reprinted with a less controversial cover. Intended as a competitor to Weird Tales, contents include Ray Bradbury, Clark Ashton Smith, H. P. Lovecraft, and Robert Bloch. These are the only copies that we've encountered to date. Not currently listed in Bookery's Guide to Pulps. From the Joe Jay Collection.
