Different Worlds #40

Here's an obscure one. The July/August 1985 issue of Different Worlds -- a magazine devoted to role playing games -- featured a nice Houdini cover by David Dixon evoking the H.P. Lovecraft story Imprisoned With The Pharaohs. However, the magazine itself features no Houdini content -- just an article about Lovecraft called, "Adventuring in the Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft - Part I: The Cthulhu Mythos."

And if you think this one is obscure enough to slip past the mighty magazine collector Arthur'd be wrong. Different Words #40 appears on page 36 of his definitive Houdini Periodical Bibliography.

You can buy this and other issues of Different Worlds via There's also a copy currently on eBay (which is how I discovered this).
