Looking Forward to Great Stuff

We really continue to be so excited about what we have on offer and coming up for – and also so grateful to you, the readers, for sticking with us and coming along for the journey.

In the coming weeks, you’ll be pleased to know we’ll be featuring:

–An interview with the son of Amos Tutuola and an excerpt from Tutuola’s most famous book.

–Original fiction from exciting new writer Kali Wallace, whose work has appeared in F&SF, among others.

–An interview with Gahan Wilson, along with fiction by him.

–An interview about weird fiction with Kathe Koja.

–Fiction from Stefan Grabinski and an interview with his translator.

–Fiction from Benin writer Olympe Bhely-Quenum

–A wide selection of Japanese horror/weird fiction

–A previously untranslated story from Julio Cortazar

And that’s just a sampling of the great material that awaits. Not to mention the ongoing 101 Weird Writers feature, the wonderful work from our regular columnists, and a special “12 Days of Monsters” celebration in March (more on that later). 

In May, we’ll have some special promotions related to the US release of our anthology The Weird, the book that started all of this…

So now it’s your turn: What would you like to see on

  1. Guys, what with the anthology and this site, you are continuing to do wonderful stuff within the realms of the weird. Hats off to you.
    In terms of what would be good to see, anything Arthur Machen related, as a big fan. Plus any more Robert Aickman and Thomas Ligotti. Much looking forward to the Grabinski, and any other Eastern European writing from that era would be equally welcome (have enjoyed the Schulz), as well as other half-forgotten corners of English-speaking weird (such as the Sarban). But what impresses is the breadth of ground you are covering. Overall, the quality is top-drawer and much-appreciated.
    Please keep up the tremendous work (I will be donating at some point — honest! — though may not be much, being a teacher and not exactly living the dandy-round-town dream yet; otherwise I’d be spending all day reading more of this!)

  2. The esoteric and foreign stuff is fine, I understand it needs to be exposed, but I would love to see serious non-fiction criticism and discussion on such modern day (but not overexposed) masters as Aickman, Ligotti, Barron, Wagner and Klein. I also would enjoy the same for older masters such as Blackwood, Machen, Hodgson, Brennan, Crawford, Onions, etc. Stuff that doesn’t get enough exposure, really, but isn’t too obscure. But don’t get me wrong this is a great site and I am waiting with anticipation for the book to come out.

  3. Let me just add that I did enjoy getting exposed to Bob Lehman whom I had never heard of before.

  4. Hi, Chris. We are running an essay on Hodgson soon, and we did run an interview with Ligotti. We’ll do something on Wagner soon. The rest are all on the radar, too. Cheers.

  5. Not sure if the Catalan writer, Juan Perucho, is on your list of writers to feature? 

    Readers might know “Natural History” which I think was first published in Catalan the 1960s and was then published in the UK by Secker and Warburg in 1989 and in the US. Reviews at the time drew comparisons with Calvino and Borges, but sadly his many other novels have not been translated into English.

    Searching on Google reveals tempting snatches of information on his other works – for example see

    In my view he is a fascinating and stylish writer who would find a new and ready audience, that for some reason has been seriously overlooked. 

    If there are any publishers out there reading this perhaps you could investigate further and commission translations of his fiction in the future?

  6. Hi there, simply was alert to your blog thru Google, and located that it’s truly informative. I am gonna be careful for brussels. I will be grateful should you continue this in future. A lot of other people will probably be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!
