Win a copy of THE WEIRD, edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer

Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Tor Books, I have a copy of The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories, edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, up for grabs. Weighing in at 1152 pages, it's an enormous anthology featuring an all-star cast of contributors. For more info about this title: Canada, USA, Europe.

Here's the blurb:

From Lovecraft to Borges to Gaiman, a century of intrepid literary experimentation has created a corpus of dark and strange stories that transcend all known genre boundaries. Together these stories form The Weird, and amongst its practitioners number some of the greatest names in twentieth and twenty-first century literature.

Exotic and esoteric, The Weird plunges you into dark domains and brings you face to face with surreal monstrosities. You won't find any elves or wizards here...but you will find the biggest, boldest, and downright most peculiar stories from the last hundred years bound together in the biggest Weird collection ever assembled.

The Weird features an all-star cast of authors, from literary legends to international bestsellers to Booker prize winners: 110 stories by authors including William Gibson, George RR Martin, Stephen King, Angela Carter, Kelly Link, Franz Kafka, China Miéville, Clive Barker, Haruki Murakami, M.R. James, Neil Gaiman, Mervyn Peake, and Michael Chabon.

The rules are the same as usual. You need to send an email at reviews@(no-spam) with the header "WEIRD." Remember to remove the "no spam" thingy.

Second, your email must contain your full mailing address (that's snail mail!), otherwise your message will be deleted.

Lastly, multiple entries will disqualify whoever sends them. And please include your screen name and the message boards that you frequent using it, if you do hang out on a particular MB.

Good luck to all the participants!
