Pulp Crazy – Roads by Seabury Quinn

With this weeks episode being the last one until Christmas, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight my favorite Christmas pulp story. A tale that chronicles the secret origin of Santa Claus, “Roads” written by Seabury Quinn with remarkable illustrations by Virgil Finlay. “Roads” first appeared in the January 1938 issue of Weird Tales, but has been reprinted several time since. It is currently available as an eBook for a very affordable price of $2.99. I think all Weird Tales fans will enjoy it.

Pulp Crazy – Johnny Kelly’s Christmas Ghost by Edwin A. Goewey

In this weeks episode I will be discussing a pretty obscure pulp story and writer. John Kelly’s Christmas Ghost by Edwin A. Goewey first appeared in the January 1927 issue of Ghost Stories. It takes place on Christmas Eve and features a young woman trying to make the best Christmas possible for a widow and her son.

Pulp Crazy – The Festival by H.P. Lovecraft

In this episode I will be discussing “The Festival” by H.P. Lovecraft. I would like to thank the Lovecraft eZine guys for bringing it to my attention on their recent video chat. The Festival appeared in the January 1925 issue of Weird Tales. The story is set during Christmas time or more appropriately, the Yuletide. The Festival is one of the first Cthulhu Mythos stories. An audio reading of the story in its entirety is included.

Lovecraft’s visit to Marblehead, Massachusetts in 1922 is said to have inspired the story. The tale seems to be set in the early 1920’s and features a nameless narrator returning to Kingsport, Massachusetts, the home of his ancestors. He is in town to take part in his people’s ancient festival.
