Best Weird Fiction Books

Weird Fiction is a branch of genre fiction that combines fantastical elements with a twist of the unusual or weird. Darker than fantasy, less technological than science fiction, weird fiction has contributed to some of the most literary and awarded works in the last twenty years. Writers are often influenced by horror and speculative fiction. Popular weird fiction authors include China Miéville, Neil Gaiman and Jeff VanderMeer. If you are looking for an overview of Weird Fiction and what it is, take a look at Jeff and Ann VanderMeer's exceptional anthology, The Weird.

Please do not include books which do not meet the genre criteria on this list.

message 2: by Kace (new)

Kace I'm amazed at all the self-published "authors" that only voted for one book and that one being their own. Really? You integrity lacking hacks consider yourselves better than Mieville, Vandermeer, Gaiman, and every other author out there? Y'all are pathetic and are the reason Goodreads is a freak'n joke.


message 3: by The Dude (new)

The Dude It's funny how a lot of the books here aren't even weird fiction
