The New Weird is a genre that has grown like a weed in the last few years, and Helen Phillips keeps expanding her contribution. I read her quirky book The Beautiful Bureaucrat and had fun so I am proposing we read her new book which just came out and which I was told is a master class in pacing. I expect it will solidly fit the afore mentioned genre championed by Jeff Vandermeer, China Mieville, Adam Novy, Yuri Herrera, and a hundred others. Her writing is fast, imperfect, short, and a lot of fun!
I am writing this from Carmichael’s and they have a bunch of copies that just came in!
Come and get one and tell them it’s for this book club for 20% off!
