The Weird: Magazine and Anthology Sources

weird cover

Busy prepping for DragonCon, but here’s a breakdown of the magazine and anthology sources for the stories in The Weird, leaving out for now author collections, in case anyone was interested. We’ll post the full publication information for all of the stories closer to the publication date, for those who are curious.

If an anthology, the editor or editors have been listed after the title. For non-UK/US mags, the country of publication has been listed. If more than one story came from a single source, the number of stories is listed in parentheses after the title of the publication. It’s worth noting that Ellen Datlow may be the editor connected to the most number of reprints in the book, given her involvement in OMNI and Event Horizon, as well as the anthology Inferno—although we’d have to research the editors at Weird Tales and Mag of F & SF during the time of publication of those reprints to make sure.

  1. Ellen Datlow says

    Hi Jeff,
    Although I’d love to, I can’t take credit for “Sandkings.” It was published before I got to OMNI. Ben Bova bought it for the magazine.

  2. Jay Steneker says

    Its amazing how wide a net you cast for this. I wish other anthologies did the same.

    I think the 3rd Alternative magazine should be in this list as well for the Martin Simpson story, unless I’m wrong.

  3. says

    Um, no. Ann published the Simpson story first in her magazine The Silver Web. Andy got it second, but didn’t do a great job of making it clear who had first acquired the story.

  4. says

    And thanks–someday we’ll also post the full list of books, mags, and anthos we went through, since there was lots of great stuff that just didn’t fit our particular focus.
