Overview

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 its practitioners include 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 110 stories by an all-star cast, from literary legends to international bestsellers to Booker Prize winners: including William Gibson, George R. R. 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.

Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post
…may be the most capacious collection of "strange and dark stories" ever to see print…[Ann and Jeff VanderMeer] have clearly thought hard and read widely to select not just classic stories…but also work by writers not always associated with the uncanny tale.
—Michael Dirda
Publishers Weekly
Ambitious in the extreme, the Vandermeers’ latest genre-blurring endeavor (after Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded), which compiles 110 weird stories from the past century, is one of the most far-reaching and inclusive speculative anthologies to ever see print. Alongside familiar names—from Lovecraft and Kafka to Link and Kiernan—the Vandermeers unveil a menagerie of obscure authors and impressive stories from around the world. These short works and novel excerpts explore every definition of weird, including Borges’s surreality (“The Aleph”), Shirley Jackson’s slow descent into darkness (“The Summer People”), Octavia E. Butler’s subtly horrific SF (“Bloodchild”), and Michael Chabon’s ornate unease (“The God of Dark Laughter”). This standard-setting compilation is a deeply affectionate and respectful history of speculative fiction’s blurry edges, and its stunning diversity, excellent quality, and extremely reasonable price point (even more so for the .99 trade paperback and .99 e-book) will entice a wide variety of readers—including those who think they don’t like “weird.” (May)
From the Publisher
Praise for THE WEIRD:
 
“What is good about the majority of these stories is precisely that they leave you with many more questions than answers, the mark, in my view, of a superior kind of fiction... It does, in fact, what most of our best fiction does, irrespective of category.” —Award-winning author Michael Moorcock, from his introduction

“These texts, dead and/or not, burrow, and we cannot predict everything they will infect or eat their path through. But certainly your brain, and they will eat the books you read from today on, too. That is how the Weird recruits.” —China Miéville, bestselling and award-winning author of Embassytown, from his afterword

“Studded with literary gems, it’s a hefty, diligently assembled survey of a genre that manages to be at once unsettling, disorientating and bracing in its variety.” —James Lovegrove, Financial Times

“It’s a tremendous experience to go through its 1,126 pages… there are so many delights in this that any reader will find something truly memorable.” —Scotland on Sunday

“Readers eager to explore a world beyond the ordinary need look no further.” —Time Out

An anthology of writing so powerful it will leave your reality utterly shredded… Give yourself to the weird! Hurl your puny mortal body through the portal the VanderMeers have opened for you, join your lord the Miéville on the other side, give your heart and soul to the saints that stand at his feet, to the mad prophets that have prepared you for his coming. Open the pages of the new gospel of The Weird.” —Guardian.co.uk

“Unmissable!”– The Guardian

“The definitive collection of weird fiction… its success lies in its ability to lend coherence to a great number of stories that are so remarkable different and yet share the same theme.” —TLS

The Barnes & Noble Review

The phrase "ocean of the stream of stories," traditionally applied to a vast cycle of Indian legends, now has a new rightful claimant in the form of Ann and Jeff VanderMeer's enormous, world-spanning, time-delving, mind- warping anthology of fantastika, The Weird, replenished as it is with flows from many lands and many eras. Assembled with passion, scholarship, and a clear vision, this Neptune-deep, Poseidon-rich volume establishes a non-exclusionary canon for "strange and dark stories," a crepuscular territory dear to the heart of any lover of tales that are deranged, odd, surreal, deracinating, spooky, creepy and — well, just plain weird.

The feast begins with a lucid, playful "Foreweird" by Michael Moorcock, himself a seminal figure in the canon. Not seeking precisely to define the weird tale, Moorcock delivers an empathetic assessment of the genre's power and allure. Bookending Moorcock is China Miéville's experimentally jaunty "Afterweird."

Right after Moorcock comes a well-argued introduction by the compilers, both of whom are experienced editors and historians of the field. (In addition, Jeff VanderMeer is a notable working fantasist himself and a frequent contributor the B&N Review.) Succinctly and insightfully, the husband-and-wife editorial team chart the past 100 years of this mode of fiction, its goals and toolkit, and its projected future. They promise rare wonders, and they instantly deliver.

Their very first selection, "The Other Side," derives from a novel by Alfred Kubin, an author whom I personally have never encountered in decades of reading this type of literature. This kickoff selection — unnerving and otherworldly, still fresh and undimmed after a century — sets the standard for the rest of the treasury: a trove of timeless oddities, each one a nonpareil, yet somehow cohering together, despite their defiant heterogeneity, into a recognizable school of fiction. Within just the next 200 pages, readers will encounter such little-known authors as Georg Heym, Luigi Ugolini, Ryunosuke Akutagawa, and H. F. Arnold, all with brilliant stories deserving of a wide audience. Of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg. And in the case of many of the writers foreign to English, the VanderMeers have commissioned bright new translations.

But such a survey as this also has to include famous authors in order to be definitive, and the VanderMeers exhibit a nice eye in this regard. If you have to feature just one Kafka, "The Penal Colony" is a winner. Likewise with Lovecraft and "The Dunwich Horror" and Bradbury and "The Crowd." Those selections do the job of limning the whole corpus of those authors. But the VanderMeers are not sticklers for any hard-and-fast guidelines, seeing that they give some worthy yet underappreciated authors, such as Jean Ray, M. John Harrison, Jeffrey Ford, and William Sansom, more than single airing. (But further thoughts on this practice later.)

By the time one reaches the 1980s, right around the middle of the book, with Michael Shea's gruesome "The Autopsy," the reader might feel that he or she has the mode all sussed out, and knows its tropes and conventions by heart. But the second half of the collection is as stirring as the first part, as a new generation of writers, such as Clive Barker, Tanith Lee, and Michael Cisco, manage to bring fresh sensibilities and strategies to the game. The final story, 2010's "Saving the Gleeful Horse" by K. J. Bishop, launches the genre boldly and bravely into future glories.

A very laudable trait of the editors is their egalitarianism, their refusal to distinguish between lowbrow and highbrow, using quality and impact as their only yardsticks. Pulp authors who might even be prejudicially deemed hacks — Donald Wollheim, Clark Ashton Smith — stand elbow to elbow in eldritch solidarity with Borges and Leonora Carrington, thus constituting a fraternity of writers where the only qualification for admission is the ability to brilliantly conjure frissons of estrangement.

Ultimately, that's what unites such a collection of disparate tales: the uncanny atmosphere and eerie emotional ambiance evoked by matters beyond our ken, by the shattering of consensual reality and placid mundane assumptions, by the eruptions into our little everyday spheres of the cosmic. One recalls Lovecraft's famous observation about the limited powers of the human mind acting to shield us mercifully from the stark realities of the universe. The need and desire to induce this peculiar yet omnipresent sensation explains how these stories differ from straight-on fantasies or allegories or fairytales, genres that do overlap or intersect the weird to some degree. The quintessential weird story must always retain some connection to the real world. Such a tale usually employs some elements of naturalism and mimesis, for it's in the interface between mundanity and extramundanity that the weird emerges. Any venue that is unrelievedly bizarre cannot sustain the pure weird.

Even in a volume of 750,000 words, there must necessarily be omissions. The VanderMeers lament their inability to secure reprint rights to stories by J. G. Ballard or Philip K. Dick. But also among the missing are Patrick McGrath, Ian McEwan (in his early days, absolutely weird), and Rhys Hughes. The great 1960s triumvirate of John Barth, Robert Coover, and Donald Barthelme are not at the party. Nor are any of the Fiction Collective 2 crowd: Lance Olsen, Mark Amerika, Doug Rice. Matthew Derby, and Rikki Ducornet deserve admission. I've always had a soft spot for Samuel Delany's "Night and the Loves of Joe Dicostanzo." Carol Emshwiller surely merits a nod, as does Thomas Disch ("Descending" or "The Squirrel Cage"). Omitting second selections from the double-entried authors would have allowed for a few additional names.

But these absences, and any other personal favorites a reader might name, evaporate in the majestic blacklight radiance of what has been curated. The sterling choices made by the VanderMeers cannot be faulted individually, and lamenting what they passed by is the apex of ingratitude. This landmark anthology codifies, ennobles, and perpetuates a tradition old as humanity's first Neolithic cave paintings of things that go bump in the night.

Author of several acclaimed novels and story collections, including Fractal Paisleys, Little Doors, and Neutrino Drag, Paul Di Filippo was nominated for a Sturgeon Award, a Hugo Award, and a World Fantasy Award — all in a single year. William Gibson has called his work "spooky, haunting, and hilarious." His reviews have appeared in The Washington Post, Science Fiction Weekly, Asimov's Magazine, andThe San Francisco Chronicle.

    One-of-a-kind

    This is a rare bird: an anthology as historic -- bringing together writers old and new, from around the world, together in a really unique compendium of "The Weird" as a fictional style -- as it is enjoyable to dive into. These aren't (mostly) ghost stories, or outright tales of the supernatural or fantasy, or Twilight-Zone-esque stories-with-a-macabre-twist, or horror fiction. Or, rather, there's some of each of those elements in nearly all of these tales. I especially found this a bargain as an ebook, since there's so much here that reading it straight through wouldn't work, so having it to return to whenever I'm in the mood is perfect.

    When I first saw the box containing this book, I got excited. T

    When I first saw the box containing this book, I got excited. Then I opened the box, saw the cover with the Lovecraftian cover and some of the contributors and gave a squee of excitement. Then I read the index. My first response was “I am in love!” This is not just another anthology, with representative samples form 1908-2010 the VanderMeer’s managed to give us a sense of the evolution of the horror/thriller genres. If you read “The Man Who Sold Rope to the Gnoles” by Lord Dunsany, you will be happy to know that there is another tale dealing with the Gnoles. You will also be pleasantly surprised by the translated stories, too. A worldwide tour de force of the wonderfully weird with translated tales from as far afield as Germany, Russia, Iran and China not just limited to the English speaking world as most of these collections tend towards, also refusing to limit themselves to the usual vampire, werewolf, zombie and sex stories. While these genres are enjoyable I their own right, it is nice to see a collection not limited to the themes that have permeated the horror/thriller section of the book stores. With contributions from the premier authorities of the eerie tale such as Saki, Lovecraft, Bradbury, Campbell, Ellison, King, Gaiman and many more, the VanderMeer’s do their best to find new stories and new authors that you may not have been introduced to before and it is well worth the time to meet the group. If you loved the delightful creepiness of The Twilight Zone, the weirdness of Fringe and wish to expand your collection and enjoyment with something that manages to stay pretty strong throughout and different from the normal, run of the mill stories, then you will definitely want to add this to your collection. I did receive this book to do a review (but still loved it!)
