The Weird Tales Centenary

The debut issue, March 1923, of the magazine Weird Tales, came out one hundred years ago. In its main run, it would last until 1954, and comprise some 279 issues. Many later-to-be-famous authors appeared in those 279 issues. Here I'd like to showcase only the first issue itself.  I post the contents listing from the FictionMags Index (here):

In terms of posterity, it's not an especially promising line-up. Farnsworth Wright was not yet the editor, though he contributed a short vignette. After a rocky start, Weird Tales did find its way to become a magazine worth celebrating.
