Intro to Meglo

A little bit about MegloBlog:

This is a space to discuss the latest news in the world of contemporary speculative fiction. There are so many impressive authors emerging right now, and we aim to keep the public informed on exciting developments and projects in the literary world.

If you are interested in fiction that blurs boundaries, this is the place for you!
We are primarily concerned with fiction that is a little bit strange and hard to place. Weird fiction, horror, science fiction, urban fantasy, magical realism … anything that feels slightly odd and unnerving, anything that breaks down the division between genre fiction and traditional literary fiction. We live in a time where binary categories and social norms are constantly shifting, so why should the norms of literature be any different!

Meglo Aims:

This site is an open channel, and we are keen to start a discussion about the state of literature in the present moment. If you would like to throw your opinions out there, please don’t be shy and leave a comment! We are based in the UK and our focus is mainly on British and North American fiction, but we are happy to hear from writers further afield.

Happy reading, happy writing, and remember to always keep an ongoing dialogue. Literature stays alive through continuing discussion of its readers!

One thought on “Intro to Meglo

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like what you are doing here. I used to be a voracious reader of speculative fiction, but I’ve reached the point where I don’t feel like I have time to sort through all the chaff (particularly in tradpub) to find the “good stuff”. So things for doing the sifting for me, so I can spend more time reading and less throwing books across the room (figuratively speaking, since everything is on Kindle these days and throwing those gets expensive).
