The Rats in the Walls
Weird Tales, March 1924
The American fantasy fiction and horror pulp magazine Weird Tales was first published in March of 1923. It was famed as the magazine showcasing the works of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard.

The first issues were 96 pages and measured 9" x 12". The March, 1924 issue's cover story is the 4 page story entitled "The Spirit Fakers of Hermannstadt - An Amazing Adventure of Houdini" by Harry Houdini and subtitled on the cover "The Most Miraculous True Story Ever Written". The cover is designed to look like the famous pose of Houdini in chains.

The issue also contains one of the most well-known Lovecraft stories, The Rats in the Walls by H. P. Lovecraft. The story was initially rejected by Argosy All-Story Weekly; Lovecraft claimed that the magazine found it "too horrible for the tender sensibilities of a delicately nurtured publick". Weird Tales Publisher JC Henneberger, described the story in a note to Lovecraft as the best his magazine had ever received.
