Course Description

The curious combination of science and horror fiction known as the ‘weird tale’ was a product of both high- and low-brow interests in reading, an epiphenomenon of literary modernism that owed its existence to the popularity of the magazine medium. We will explore the form in eight short stories, from its origins in the work of Robert W Chambers, to its crystallisation into a genre by HP Lovecraft, and its attainment of apotheosis at the hands of Thomas Ligotti.
