This week, Weirdfictionreview.com celebrates its one-year anniversary with a barrage of wonderful features, including nonfiction from John Clute, an essay on Elizabeth Hand, and new fiction from Stephen Graham Jones. Over the past year, we have published over 250 articles, short stories, essays, and art galleries. We’ve given you regular columnists like Edward Gauvin (translations) and Nancy Hightower (art). We’ve also provided coverage of interesting movies (Matthew Pridham) and started a book review column (Maureen Kincaid Speller). We’ve interviewed everyone from Neil Gaiman to Brian Evenson to the son of Amos Tutuola (one of our most popular features). We’ve given you a creepy look at an abandoned town in Belgium and brought the macabre closer to home with video coverage of the Cute & Creepy art show. We brought you reports of dark fantasy from the Philippines, Belgium, and other places around the world.
Among the writers we’ve published fiction from in the past year: Jean Ray, Amos Tutuola, Greer Gilman, Tanith Lee, Thomas Ligotti, Kelly Link, Lisa Tuttle, Michael Cisco, Bruno Schulz, Johanna Sinisalo, Jeffrey Ford, Leena Krohn, Rochita Loenin-Ruiz, Kathe Koja, Stefan Grabinski, Tamsyn Muir, Rhys Hughes, Conrad Williams, Georg Heym, Olympe Bhêly-Quénum, Steve Rasnic Tem, Reza Negarestani, Gemma Files, Genevieve Valentine, Caitlin R.
