Fantastic news broke earlier today: this year’s World Fantasy Awards ballot has been announced, and The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories is nominated for Best Anthology!
We truly couldn’t be happier about this news. The Weird, namely the extensive research and reading that went into compiling that anthology, made the existence of this site possible in the first place. We’re deeply proud of The Weird, which gave us an opportunity to feature an incredible strain of literature to all sorts of unsuspecting readers, new and familiar alike, and to introduce them to classic and would-be classic writers and stories deserving of attention.
Also nominated under Best Anthology is The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities, which we’ve featured on this site in the past with pieces from Michael Cisco, Reza Negarestani, and Caitlín R. Kiernan. We’re also truly proud of this anthology, featuring the work of over 80 stellar writers and artists in pursuit of some especially strange and dark stories.
Congratulations to all of the nominees this year, and a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has read and loved The Weird!
