Here’s the description:

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.

  1. Here we go again, such a wonderful book, who wouldn´t like to have it, and it´s limited to residents of the U. S. and Canada only. Europeans plus the rest of the world can just express their sad feelings about not being accepted to the giveaway book club. So it goes…

      I must say, things would be easier if the US still had a media rate for books going overseas. This thing is hefty, and expensive to send, alas.

  2. Hefty is a good word. Even the Kindle edition weighs in at a pound and a half.

  3. Maybe you can have it open to people everywhere, and if someone overseas wins it they have to pay shipping?

  4. This book looks so awesome. It’s an education in WEIRD!
