Weird Tales Project: 1930

In January of 2021 I decided it was my destiny to blog about at least one story from each issue of Weird Tales released in the 1930s.  Today I can report palpable progress in fulfilling this sacred duty--I have now blogged about at least one story in all twelve issues of The Unique Magazine dated 1930!  Below find a list of these stories and links to my arbitrary, ill-informed and idiosyncratic opinions about each! 

(Should I blog about any more stories printed in a 1930 issue of Weird Tales I will add them to this list with a parenthetical note.)

Oh, yeah, here I'll put links to the other nine blogposts that serve as a record of this major literary project:
