I think this is the most ambitious anthology since those published by Alberto Manguel (Black Water: 1 & 2). Especially awesome is the forweird by Michael Moorcock and the afterweird by China Mieville and the introduction by the Vandermeers as is usual in all of their anthologies is just spectacular.
I only wish there could have been space for Sarban, his work serves as a bridge between the cosmic mysticism of Machen/Blackwood and the psychological ambiguity of Aickman, and derserves to be rediscovered.

Ann VanderMeer: Well, *Weird Tales *is publishing edgy, urban, sometimes futuristic fiction right now. Over one hundred years of weird fiction collected in a single volume of 750,000 words. Terrifying. The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories, The Dark Man: The Journal of Robert E. Howard Studies, December 2014. And it’s absolutely thrilling to see so many translations.
But I am glad that for you we largely seem to have gotten it right. Tonight it’s hopefully “Window” and more. The TOC looks jam-packed with excellent work.
I don’t get to read often, but when I do, I pour through as much as I can.
I’m very much looking forward to it. Over 20 nationalities are represented and seven new translations were commissioned for the book, most notably definitive translations of Julio Cortazar’s “Axolotl” and Michel Bernanos’ short novel “The Other Side of the Mountain” (the first translations of these classics in many decades).
