Editorial Reviews


Morton and Klinger refute the popular misconception that the early horror genre had few femalewriters—in reality, as they show, women writers were forerunners of the genre, often supportingtheir families through their work and gaining fame, only to be allowed to drift into obscurity andout of print. The two editors bring these authors back into the spotlight here...These tales were written by women with streaks ofindependence—some of them writing under pen names, some of them queer—and theirrebellion shines through the subtext...Feminist and horror-genre readers will jump on this compelling and spooky collection, as LouisaMay Alcott writes of seeds found in a mummy’s chamber and as gorgeous women werewolvesand mad scientists haunt these pages., Booklist, Starred

Horrors and mysteries abound here, with well-known writers like Charlotte Perkins Gilman published alongside less recognized names like Marie Corelli, an early-1900s author who outsold “contemporaries like Rudyard Kipling and Arthur Conan Doyle,” and whose “admirers included Oscar Wilde.” If the difficulties of enforced domestic life take their toll, it might be worth reading the supernatural dread and unexplained occurrences women recalled, and imagined, from an earlier time of homebound life., Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine

It is an absolute must-own for those interested in the women who helped shape the horror genre...What I love most about this collection–and other collections like it–is when I am introduced to works and authors I have not read before...Weird Women ultimately works because of the stories and authors Klinger and Morton chose. They present a cross-section of the women who published during the time period, focusing on tales that are not only well-written but are also genuinely creepy. -- Waylon Jordan, iHorror.com
