Unlike nineteenth-century Gothic fiction, which tends to fixate on the past, the haunted and the ghostly, early weird fiction probes the very boundaries of reality – the laws and limits of time, space, and matter. Here, unimaginable terrors lurk in hitherto unknown mirror dimensions, calamities in ultra-space threaten to wipe clean all evidence of our universe, and experiments in non-Euclidean geometry lead to sickening consequences.
In twelve speculative tales of our universe’s mathematics and physics gone awry, this new anthology presents an abundance of curiosities – and terrors – with stories from Jorge Luis Borges, Miriam Allen deFord, Frank Belknap Long and Algernon Blackwood.
