  • Note: 1923-1954: Initially a companion magazine to Detective Tales, Weird Tales was the stomping grounds for H. P. Lovecraft, with frequent contributions by Frank Belknap Long, August W. Derleth, E. Hoffmann Price, Donald Wandrei, Robert Bloch, Henry Kuttner, Clark Ashton Smith, and Robert E. Howard. 1973-1974: After aquiring the rights to the name Weird Tales, Leo Margulies finally launched a new version of the magazine in 1973, with Sam Moskowitz as editor. The magazine reprinted many of the old stories from earlier issues, and interest was never really generated for the new version of the magazine. 1980-1983: Robert Weinberg and Victor Dricks bought the rights to the Weird Tales name when Leo Marguiles died in 1975. The rights were then licensed to Lin Carter, who persuaded Zebra Books to publish anthologies in paperback format with the name. Four such books were produced before the attempt failed. 1984-1985: After the failure of the Zebra publications, Robert E. Weinberg and Victor Dricks licensed the Weird Tales name to the Bellerophon Network, a publishing company owned by Brian Forbes. The magazine was poorly funded and distributed, and failed after only 2 issues. 1988-1994: George H. Scithers used his publishing company (Terminus) to bring back Weird Tales in a format similar to the original publication. Darrell Schweitzer and John Gregory Betancourt were assistant editors for the first 2 years; Schweitzer took full editorship with the Spring 1991 issue. The license to use the Weird Tales name was terminated with the Spring 1994 issue, instigating the change to the new title Worlds of Fantasy & Horror. Worlds of Fantasy & Horror (1994-1996): After rights to the Weird Tales name were lost in 1994, the magazine altered its title to Worlds of Fantasy & Horror, retaining the same format and style as the 1988-1994 version of Weird Tales. 1998-: The Latest incarnation
