Contains ten weird and supernatural short stories which includes, The Spider, The Pool, The Will of Luke Carlowe, The Wedding Guest, The Soul of Nina Ventrix, The Bulb, Purple Eyes, A Hundred Year's Dead, A Dead Man's Bargain and The Compact. The Weird O' It is considered to be of legendary rarity in the supernatural genre. Henry J. Drane produced books in very small print run editions and it is likely that there would have only been around 300 copies of this book originally. It has been suggested that there are three variants of the book known. Copies exist in red, pale green and cream cloth although priority is not known. In 2000, Midnight House of Seattle republished a hardcover edition of "The Weird o’ It," limited to 460 copies.
