Bizarro Fiction

Bizarro Fiction is the title used to refer to a new literary movement begun by three independent publishers: Eraserhead PressRaw Dog Screaming Press, and Afterbirth Books. These publishers have sought to provide readers with superbly crafted books that are bizarre, surreal, that stretch the laws of storytelling and the boundaries of the mind and that, above all, entertain.

Bizarro fiction can be strange, disorienting, unsettling, familiar, uncomfortable, unbearably sweet, apocalyptic, modern, violent, slow, fast, human, inhuman, subtle or explosive.

But the threads that bind the genre are the author’s insistence on and mastery of the weird.

I have my favorites in the genre, but I have yet to be disappointed by a Bizarro book.
