Summary

Summary

The Urban Bizarre brings together tales of the city from the best new science fiction writers, pornographers, and zinesters -- stories too weird, too dark, and just plain too bizarre to be published elsewhere. Edited by the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author Nick Mamatas, The Urban Bizarre guarantees you'll never look at a cab driver or street corner in quite the same way again.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The Urban Bizarre, an anthology edited by Stoker nominee Nick Matamas (Northern Gothic), collects 14 all-original stories of the city by new writers on the underground fringe. As Matamas aptly observes in his introduction, "The stories here are speculative, dangerous, slippery and sexualized, but they're also painfully, thrillingly authentic." (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
