The first, and only, issue of a horror anthology named after the classic Weird Tales pulp title. The first issue features an adaptation of Ellison's short story Shattered Like A Glass Goblin. This issue was produced in two editions, a deluxe and regular, but no further issues were published. The Deluxe Edition was produced in a prestige/squarebound format and features the illustrated story “By the Light of the Silvery” by Les Daniels with illustrations by Tim Vigil.
Other stories in this issue include “Party Games” by Faye Perovich and John Bolton, “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe with art by P. Craig Russell, “A Visitor From Egypt” by Frank Bellknap Long adapted by Paul Davis and Eddy Newell, and “By the Light of the Silvery” by Les Daniels with illustrations by Tim Vigil. It also featured an introduction by writer Robert Weinberg.
In the early-’90s, comic publisher Millennium Publications licensed the name of the classic magazine anthology Weird Tales for a comic book anthology title. It would feature a mix of new horror stories and adaptations of classic works. The first issue of Weird Tales Illustrated featured an adaptation of Harlan Ellison’s “Shattered Like A Glass Goblin.”
