weirdism novelists

from Yahoo! Picks:

The Modern Word
Lovers of literature that opens new vistas, creates fresh modes of communication, and screws with your head 'til its ready to come off, take note. This site tackles surrealism, magical realism, modernism, postmodernism, and plain-old-weirdism (our term) with a "network of literary sites dedicated to exploring twentieth century writers who have pushed the envelope of traditional narrative and structure." Heavyweights such as Beckett, García Márquez, Kafka, and Pynchon receive the full treatment, with reviews, essays, and some surprises thrown into the mix. Other features include reviews of like-minded authors such as David Foster Wallace or Philip K. Dick, a section on small presses, and an index of experimental writers. After indulging in the worlds of these lunatic-geniuses, good luck in distinguishing up from down. (in Literature > News and Media)
