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.
