is an online magazine devoted to weird short stories. The purpose is to entertain, stimulate creativity, and make people laugh or just go ďWhat the Hell?Ē
We believe that the expression of free thinking and creativity, in the form of weird short stories, can promote a better understanding of the world. Weíre hoping to reduce the intolerance and narrow-mindedness that often result from conformity. Although conformity isnít all bad Ė for example, itís quite nice that most people drive on the correct side of the road Ė we feel that itís important to at least be aware of the tendency of letting other people define how one should view the world. Thus, we bring weirdness to the world, because the more weirdness you have seen, the better equipped you will be to see the world as it really is.
We donít want to insult our stories (or authors) by forcing a particular genre label upon them. Anything goes, as long as itís a solid piece of entertaining weirdness in 500 or fewer words.
