You like weird things, right? Who doesn’t! So how about a whole book of the very best weird fiction published last year. As the title implies, Year’s Best Weird Fiction Volume 1 is the first in a new series published by Undertow/ChiZine Publications. The inaugural volume was edited by Laird Barron, along with series editor Michael Kelly. Next year’s volume will be edited by Kathe Koja and Michael Kelly. (Authors, take note – vol. 2 is currently open to reprint submissions and that handy link I just pasted will take your straight to the submission page.) The first volume contains works by the likes of Jeffrey Ford, Livia Llewellyn, Sofia Samatar, Jeff VanderMeer, and yours truly. Wanna win a copy? Of course you do!
In order to enter, all you have to do is go to the comments and tell me something weird. For the purposes of this contest, I’m defining weird broadly. It could be a real life uncanny occurrence you can’t explain, a link to a piece of weird fiction, an odd coincidence, or even the lyrics to your favorite Weird Al song. The winner will be chosen by random number generator. The contest ends on Halloween. Get your weird on!
ETA: The random number generator has declared Sara Saab the winner! Thank you all for sharing your wonderful weirdness!
