The New Weird

Title: The New Weird
Author: Ann VanderMeer & Jeff VanderMeer, eds.
Publisher: Tachyon
ISBN: 978189239155
Why Read?: For Fun
Challenges: Full Steampunk Ahead, 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: A very interesting short story collection detailing what "the new weird" is. However, while I did enjoy some of the stories, I still do not fully grasp the concept of "the new weird". While I have read China Mieville and Clive Barker before, I was introduced to some other authors, like K. J. Bishop. A section of the book also contained discussions and essays on "the new weird", but I found the stories to be the more entertaining part.
Rating: 2 stars
