Redirect[edit]

...should "weird fiction" not redirect more to fantasy rather than horror ? (i'm coming from the The_Scar page, and China Mieville is much more Fantasy-inspired/orientated rather than horror...)

I agree, this is not a helpful redirect. I'll start a weird fiction stub. --Junius49 (talk) 14:34, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Weird Fiction Authors[edit]

I've just added 'Frank Belknap Long' and 'Brian Lumley' to the list. There are probably quite a few other notable weird fiction authors that should be included. Incidentally: there seems to be no particular ordering in this list - it needs to be arranged alphabetically...Ericlord (talk) 09:50, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

IMO, what the article needs is more discusion of what wierd fiction is and it's importance, not just a useless list of authors getting longer and longer. I revert uncited additions to the list on sight, especially modern authors who write standard horror (eg Lumley).Yobmod (talk) 10:18, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
