Description

The Machine Book of Weird is a collection of old short stories that explore what it’s like to live indoors. This is compendium of lockdown literature – written before lockdowns happened. The volume explores the consequence of our sudden interior turn.

A century ago, writers throughout the supposedly civilised world realised their once familiar, domestic world had changed profoundly and began to describe it in singular unsettling ways. The literature of the lockdown may have already been written.

The volume includes texts by EF Benson, Algernon Blackwood, Anton Chekhov, GK Chesterton, Kate Chopin, O Henry, HP Lovecraft, Guy de Maupassant, E Nesbit, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Saki, and HG Wells.
