A Thrilling Publication

Snappy Weird Stories
Snappy Weird Stories

In celebration of Halloween this weekend, we found this copy of “Snappy Weird Stories” published in the Idaho Blue Bucket from 1938. The first story, “Blood Across the Moor”, begins with: “Dr. Heckle’s plan needed only a human guinea pig for its trial before the gruesome device would be ready to use in his destruction of the world in which we live today.” The Blue Bucket was the university’s humor magazine that first published in 1923 and was produced six times each year by the Associated Students of the University of Idaho. Happy Halloween!
