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