Edwin Baird--an accomplished Chicago pulp writer in the early part of the 20th century--was hired in 1923 to edit a new type of fiction magazine, also being published out of Chicago. That magazine was the classic Weird Tales, and with its launch history was made. Baird's assistants were fellow writers Farnsworth Wright and Otis Adelbert Kline. Baird's greatest discovery was the hot new horror writer of the 1920s, H.P. Lovecraft! Here is one of Baird's own tales ... a tale of starving artists, a beautiful girl, and a Kentucky chicken farm!
