THE WEIRD: 'So many delights'
And they like it:
‘Incredible... a tremendous experience... What is truly ingenious in this volume is they way the editors have tessellated works of indisputable literary genius with stories from the pulp tradition. To move from Franz Kafka’s In The Penal Colony to William Sansom’s The Long Sheet, and to realise their almost subliminal connections, is an unlikely and thrilling jolt...There are so many delights in this that any reader will find something truly memorable. For me, it’s the deliciously horrific The Book by Margaret Irwin, which is a salutary shocker for any book reviewer, about a tome so awful it even infects the way you read books that were placed next to it. The Weird manages to do something almost similar.
