In genre circles, I hear a lot about the New Weird. Spearheaded by China Mieville, Jeff Vandermeer, it's part urban fantasy (mostly the urban part), part dark fantasy, part horror, all strange. I get it, at least mostly.
But what pray tell constitutes The Old Weird? Lovecraft? Others?
Actually Da Vinci's Notebook. Strange dude.
Doth a seminal list of Old Weird stories exist outside the dark pages of the Necronomicon? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts.
