The Weird Fiction Circle


Description

Weird fiction is a subgenre of speculative literature originating from the 19th and 20th century which focuses on exactly what it says: the weirdest things imaginable. This genre is based around the complete eschewment or drastical reinterpretation of traditional fantasy, sci-fi, and horror, to create a mood that truly feels otherworldly. Famous authors in this circle include Howard Phillips Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Lord Dunsany, and a few others operating within the Gothic horror genre such as Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker.

And the Weird Fiction Writers' Circle is based around upholding the Weird tradition by sharing and getting feedback on various works in the weird fiction genre. Although it is expected that most of the works here would be based in horror, that is not a requirement, so long as whatever you put forth is most definitely weird. Now, let us heed the call of the other worlds and spread their splendor into the modern day!
