Well I am going to now simply promote a fantastically great looking new anthology collection which I have gained as a freebie in a  competition from the guys at Geek Syndicate wordpress blog. THE WEIRD is edited by ANN and JEFF VANDERMEER, Hugo award and World Fantasy award winners. It is a truly impressively huge book which includes so many collected short fiction tales from classic much respected authors such as KAFKA, LOVECRAFT, SAKI, through to more modern edgy writers just as admired and talented including some very personal favourites like CLIVE BARKER, POPPY Z BRITE, RAMSEY CAMPBELL, NEIL GAIMAN. There are writers fearured who would not usually be collected together like DAPHNE DU MAURIER, ROBERT BLOCH, the amazing MR JAMES, the legend that is STEPHEN KING, and so many more.

With an introduction from MICHAEL MOORCOCK, and ‘Afterweird’ from the currently highly successful CHINA MIEVILLE, I just cannot wait to dig right into this heavy facinating big read. You certainly should consider it if you too also have any interest in just what WEIRD really is…
