Strange aims to define the ”slipstream” genre through this anthology of offbeat stories by Jonathan Lethem, Michael Chabon, Bruce Sterling, and 12 others.

For Fans of
Surreal David Lynch and Wim Wenders films.

Lethem’s crack-smoking aliens.

This book doesn’t define a genre you’ve never heard of so much as blur the line between sci-fi and mainstream lit.
