Revista Digital MiNatura issue 142 : Weird Fiction Dossier

    Revista Digital MI NATURA 2015

    “Revista Digital miNatura” fanzine have edited news issue. It´s a literary magazine centered microstories, which offers a English version. Current issue topic is “Weird Fiction”

    Nothing seems to be so naive and childish as the Weird Fiction, I see a subtle warning to certain hazards beyond our understanding. Some writers thought they saw the misty land of a dark universe and were only cliffs where shipwrecked Poe, Machen and Bierce.
    HP Lovecraft whispers through his alter ego Abdul Alhazred about creatures beyond space and time whose dreams are sources of inspiration for architects and insane.
    Perhaps for the same reasons as the Dayak people (I love quote James George Frazer!) Went hunting heads, their wives or sisters remained in the waking state, armed with knives, because while sleeping warrior may be attacked by wizards or demons. We are like children to the terror of going to bed and turning off the light, but to stop being so lose the gift of the key of dreams as Randolph Carter, arguably the most positive and least pathetic and endearing Lovecraftian cosmos character, eternal searching the home of the Ancients.
