Críticas:

"What is good about the majority of these stories is precisely that they leave you with many more questions than answers, the mark, in my view, of a superior kind of fiction... It does, in fact, what most of our best fiction does, irrespective of category." --Award-winning author Michael Moorcock, from his introduction

"These texts, dead and/or not, burrow, and we cannot predict everything they will infect or eat their path through. But certainly your brain, and they will eat the books you read from today on, too. That is how the Weird recruits." --China Mieville, bestselling and award-winning author of "Embassytown", from his afterword

""The Steampunk Bible "is an informed, informative and beautifully illustrated survey of the subject." "--The Financial Times"

"Studded with literary gems, it's a hefty, diligently assembled survey of a genre that manages to be at once unsettling, disorientating and bracing in its variety." --"James Lovegrove, Financial Times "

"""An anthology of writing so powerful it will leave your reality utterly shredded... Give yourself to the weird! Hurl your puny mortal body through the portal the VanderMeers have opened for you, join your lord the Mieville on the other side, give your heart and soul to the saints that stand at his feet, to the mad prophets that have prepared you for his coming.

Reseña del editor:

From Lovecraft to Borges to Gaiman, a century of intrepid literary experimentation has created a corpus of dark and strange stories that transcend all known genre boundaries. Together these stories form The Weird, and its practitioners include some of the greatest names in twentieth and twenty-first century literature.

Exotic and esoteric, The Weird plunges you into dark domains and brings you face to face with surreal monstrosities. You won't find any elves or wizards here...but you will find the biggest, boldest, and downright most peculiar stories from the last hundred years bound together in the biggest Weird collection ever assembled.
The Weird features 110 stories by an all-star cast, from literary legends to international bestsellers to Booker Prize winners: including William Gibson, George R. R. Martin, Stephen King, Angela Carter, Kelly Link, Franz Kafka, China Mieville, Clive Barker, Haruki Murakami, M. R. James, Neil Gaiman, Mervyn Peake, and Michael Chabon.

The Weird is the winner of the 2012 World Fantasy Award for Best Anthology
