Writing the Uncanny: Essays On Crafting Strange Fiction


How does the Uncanny make us sit uncomfortably in our chairs, to glance at the shadows as they shift in the corner of the room, to survey our own reflection with doubt and fear? Dan Coxon and Richard V. Hirst asked some of the best writers of the Uncanny to explain how and why they choose to work with horror, weird fiction, supernatural fiction and folklore. Authors such as Jeremy Dyson, Alison Moore, Jenn Ashworth, and Lucie McKnight Hardy consider psychogeography, fairy tales, cultural tradition, ghost stories, and altogether different approaches to the genre. ‘Writing The Uncanny’ is a guide for both the casual reader and the aspiring writer of strange tales.
