Question as I haven't read China Mieville yet, but am planning to very soon: How would you differentiate "New Weird" as a genre from "Bizzaro Fiction" as both derive from similar influences? Is it just the fantasy and sci fi component? Or does the horror component of Bizarro make New weird uncomfortable and want to separate themselves from being perceived as trash?

Interesting question. Not sure I've read anything that could be considered "Bizarro" but there is a pretty strong fantasy/sci fi vibe in New Weird, especially Mieville. Perdido Street Station (maybe my fav of Mieville's) has a pretty strong urban Lovecraftian horror vibe going on too. I think New Weird has a bit more of a speculative fiction thing going on.

From the New Weird wikipedia page:
In comparing The New Weird to Bizarro fiction, Rose O'Keefe of Eraserhead Press claims that "People buy New Weird because they want cutting edge speculative fiction with a literary slant. It’s kind of like slipstream with a side of weirdness."[4]

Not so much for the "high brow" crowd, but I just finished the Trilogy - "One second after", "One year after" and "The Final Day" by William R. Forstchen
-
Damned fine books in the vein of Stephen King's "The Stand".

Historical fiction. Not everyone's cuppa tea but if you like - late Roman fiction, well done. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_s...d=L0YI6JUG53HX

Local JoCo lie-berry has 'em all, I bought 'em 2nd hand myself because I like to read these again.

I'm currently reading the collaboration between Stephen King and his son Owen called Sleeping Beauties.Almost 1/2 thru the 700 pages and it has been a page turner,just hoping I'm not headed toward another IT ending.

Currently reading In Cold Blood by Capote. About halfway thru and so far I’ve been mesmerized.

Really good thus far.

I’m a sucker for true crime books.
