Welcome to the weird! Acclaimed author and editor Laird Barron, one of weird fiction's brightest exponents, brings his expert eye and editorial sense to the inaugural volume of the Year's Best Weird Fiction. No longer the purview of esoteric readers, weird fiction is enjoying wide popularity. Chiefly derived from early 20th-century pulp fiction, its remit includes ghost stories, the strange and macabre, the supernatural, fantasy, myth, philosophical ontology, ambiguity, and a healthy helping of the outre. At its best, weird fiction is an intersecting of themes and ideas that explore and subvert the Laws of Nature. It is not confined to one genre, but is the most diverse and welcoming of all genres. Hence, in this initial showcase of weird fiction you will discover tales of horror, fantasy, science fiction, the supernatural, and the macabre. Contributing authors include Jeffrey Ford, Sofia Samatar, Joseph S. Pulver Sr, John Langan, Richard Gavin, and W. H. Pugmire.

Summary: Praise for The Croning : ". . . most years bring at least a handful ofnovels whose titles can stand to be mentioned alongside Matheson's I Am Legend , Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House , and King's The Shining . To this year's list, add Laird Barron's The Croning ." -- L.A. Review of Books " The Croning , then, is an unspeakably intimate novel of cosmic horror. From the darkly fantastic fairytale with which it opens and closes through to a deeply disturbing yet massively satisfying climax, via an assortment of effulgent intermezzos--gratifying in their own right, but also critical to the success of the central thread--it demonstrates Laird Barron is as adept a genre novelist as he is undoubtedly a purveyor of shorter horror." -- Strange Horizons.
