Synopsis

From Lovecraft to Borges to Gaiman, a century of intrepid literary experimentation has created a corpus of dark and strange stories that transcend all known genre boundaries. Together these stories form The Weird, and amongst its practitioners number some of the greatest names in twentieth and twenty-first century literature.

Exotic and esoteric, The Weird plunges you into dark domains and brings you face to face with surreal monstrosities. You won't find any elves or wizards here...but you will find the biggest, boldest, and downright most peculiar stories from the last hundred years bound together in the biggest Weird collection ever assembled.

The Weird features an all-star cast of authors, from literary legends to international bestsellers to Booker prize winners: 110 stories by authors including William Gibson, George RR Martin, Stephen King, Angela Carter, Kelly Link, Franz Kafka, China Miéville, Clive Barker, Haruki Murakami, M.R. James, Neil Gaiman, Mervyn Peake, and Michael Chabon.

This ebook omits ‘The Colomber’ by Dino Buzzati, which is included in the print edition, and adds ‘The Portal’ by J. Robert Lennon.

The Weird is the winner of the 2012 World Fantasy Award for Best Anthology
