Weird fiction is a form
Weird fiction is a form of speculative writing, derived from pulp fiction in the early 20th century, whose remit includes ghost stories, the strange and macabre, the supernatural, fantasy, and myth.
We will be meeting for a casual discussion of the art of weird fiction, focusing on the stories of American writer, Kelly Link, whose dazzling stories collected within Stranger Things Happen are full of gothic discomfort and surreal scenarios. In particular, we will be discussing the following stories:
- “Water Off a Black Dog’s Back”
- “The Specialist’s Hat”
- “Vanishing Act”
