The Curio Cabinet

As someone who writes weird and slipstream fiction, I know how hard it can be to find pieces with the aesthetic I enjoy. Great weird writing often falls under general fantasy, science fiction, or horror categories. I’ve collected some of my favorites that are sure to keep you in a curious mood.
