The 357th issue of Weird Tales magazine is a celebration of short fiction, with a selection of great new stories.

As evidence of the awesome weirdness in store for you here at Weird Tales, just take a closer look at this issue in your hands. Karen Heuler is back with another wild tale; this time about an unsatisfied woman. Be careful what you wish for, especially when your wish comes from a fish. And J. Robert Lennon invites us to cross through “The Portal” from our world into various others. Karin Tidbeck (a Swedish writer in her first US appearance) takes us from some other world back into our own in “Augusta Prima.” You’ll never look at a croquet ball the same way.

Just when we thought we’d seen it all and we’re too jaded by technology to be surprised by anything, we are swept into yet another world inside the intertubes with N.K. Jemisin’s “The Trojan Girl.” And I know you think that mimes are creepy but you have no idea how scary they are until you read Peter M. Ball’s story “The Last Thing Said Before Silence.” Finishing up this issue is a new Scottish writer, Mark Meredith, who takes us on a strange and wondrous walk.

So sit back and enjoy the trip!
