Pulp Crazy – The Graveyard Rats by Henry Kuttner

In this episode I discuss the Graveyard Rats by Henry Kuttner. It first appeared in the March 1936 issue of Weird Tales magazine. It is set in a Salem, Massachusetts cemetery and focuses on a grave robbing caretaker. I broadcast on location for the first time at the Evans City Cemetery. This is where the opening scenes of the 1968 zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead were filmed.

Pulp Crazy – Jirel of Joiry by C.L. Moore

 

In this episode I discuss Catherine Lucille Moore’s groundbreaking sword & sorcery heroine, Jirel of Joiry. The character originally appeared in the pages of Weird Tales magazine, her first appearance being in the October 1934 issue. I believe she is one of the major inspirations for Red Sonja, the She Devil With a Sword, along with Robert E. Howard’s original Red Sonya of Rogatino.
