''WeirdTales'' was, in its day, the proving ground for several popular authors of weird fiction. Who would you say was its most popular-- Creator/HPLovecraft? Creator/RobertEHoward? Creator/ClarkAshtonSmith?

Seabury Grandin Quinn (aka Jerome Burke; 1889 - 1969) was a frequent contributor to ''Weird Tales'', an author of some five hundred short stories (and one novel, ''Alien Flesh'', published posthumously in 1977). His most successful creation was the occult investigator Jules de Grandin, who featured in over ninety stories published between 1925 and 1951 (including a novella, ''The Devil's Bride''). Several of his stories tied or even beat out more currently-known works of Howard or Lovecraft in reader surveys.

surveys. He also had a most oddly suitable day job for a ''Weird Tales'' author; he edited ''Casket and Sunnyside'', the trade journal for the American Undertakers' Association.

So what happened? Hard to say. After his death, many of the Grandin stories were put out in mass-market paperback compilations from Popular Library in the early 1970s, but reprints were never done, and recent collections of his work have been in much smaller runs by independent publishers. A few of his stories have entered the public domain and can be found with searching, and many individual stories have been reprinted in various horror and weird fiction anthologies.

* WhatTheHellHero: Trowbridge is taken aback when Grandin threatens to stab a rather foolish spiritualist in "The Wolf of Saint Bonnot". True, she's kind of a {{Jerkass}} and the one responsible for the mess (and almost responsible for preventing the monster from being destroyed)-- but she is not deliberately malicious and de Grandin comes off unusually nasty for once.
