New Weird Tales. My wife Ann is the fiction editor, although you probably already know that. In August she’ll be going to the World SF Convention as a Hugo nominee because of it. Here’s the lineup. I should note there’s some awesome stuff in this issue, but “The Garbacologist” is perhaps the most awesome. It’s a tough call.

FICTION
– “Weiroot” | by Jeffrey Ford
– “The Garbacologist” | by Jeff Johnson
– “Headstones in Your Pocket” | by Paul G. Tremblay
– “Bruise for Bruise” | by Robert Davies
– “Court Scranto” | by Caleb Wilson
– “Selected Views of Mt. Fuji, With Dinosaurs” | by Hunter Eden

FEATURES
– “Thomas Ligotti: The Weird Tales Interview” | Geoffrey Goodwin asks horror’s offbeat genius: must life be so decayingly crummy?
– “Richard Corben: Drawing Upon the Masters” | The comic-book legend tells Bill Baker about adapting Poe and Lovecraft for Marvel’s Haunt of Horror.

DEPARTMENTS
– Weirdism | J.G. Ballard: the most mindblowing drug
– The Bazaar | steampunk art sorceress Bethalynne Bajema
– The Library | Tanith Lee, Catherynne Valente, and Jedediah Berry
– Lost In Lovecraft | a literary journey with Kenneth Hite
