Weird Literature: For news on weird fiction, collectibles, and book discussion. Contemporary authors of the Weird, such China Miéville, Kelly Link, M. John Harrison, K.J. Bishop, Eric Basso, and Jeff Vandermeer. Foundational authors such as H.P. Lovecraft, Alfred Kubin, Algernon Blackwood, Robert Chambers, and Jean Ray. Everyone in between. Stories and writers that might brush up against science fiction, horror, fantasy, and other genres, but never quite fit in any of them.

Dedicated to the works of H.P. Lovecraft, this is your stop for all of his outstanding works and weird fiction in general!

Lighter fare, memes, silly jokes, etc. are better suited to /r/Cthulhu. Those interested in Lovecraftian artwork should check out /r/ImaginaryNecronomicon.

A place to discuss published SF—novels, short stories, comics, images, and more. Not sure if a book is SF? Then post it! Science Fiction, Fantasy, Alt. History, Postmodern Lit., and more are all welcome here. The key is that it be speculative, not that it fit some arbitrary genre guidelines. Any sort of link or text post is welcome as long as it is about printed / text / static SF material.
