Hypnos
Weird Tales May/June/July 1924
The 1924 anniversary issue of Weird Tales included over 50 novels, short stories and novelettes. The magazine became the subject of controversy because of a story by C. M. Eddy, Jr. "The Loved Dead", that briefly mentioned necrophilia. There was a public outcry and Weird Tales was removed from several newsstands as a result, but also the publicity regarding the story resulted in increased sales and helped to save the imperiled magazine from bankruptcy.

The cover story was 'Imprisoned with the Pharaohs' by Harry Houdini, a novelette ghost written by H. P. Lovecraft.

The issue also included Lovecraft's short story Hypnos. The man who would not sleep--dares not sleep--takes drugs to keep himself awake. Finally falls asleep--and something happens.
