Good Work, Google Books!

One of the most useful things I've learned recently via my fellow law librarians on Twitter: Google books has scanned in a full run of the Weekly World News! (Thanks, Sarah Glassmeyer!)

I'm not positive if it's a FULL full run; the main page shows the front cover of an issue from 1993, and I don't know when the WWN started publishing. But FINALLY I can get the digital images from the issue I have framed and which I hang up in my office during carnival season:

As well as the interior pages for this story that I didn't save:

Excellent! (A little tweaking of the method described here, together with only some mild aggravation, got me the images I wanted without doing a lot of screen captures.)
