Returning after a super-successful first bundle, StoryBundle is proud to present Weird Bundle 2: The Return Of The Weird, once again specially curated by the World Fantasy Award-winning writer (the Southern Reach Trilogy) For the second time, a host of award-winning and nominated international literary fantasy books from Jeff VanderMeer's own Cheeky Frawg ebook imprint rub shoulders with highlights from Jeff's own back catalog, plus amazing exclusives and rare reprints!

The range of titles in this follow-up ebook bundle is again spectacular, with the acclaimed VanderMeer-curated weird fiction anthology Odd? Volume 1 kicking things off in style. Michael Cisco's macabre International Horror Guild Award-winning book The Divinity Student is yet another standout in this carefully picked set of unconventional full-length books, short story compilations and novellas.

Other titles in the lower payment tier include a wonderful compilation of tales from legendary Nigerian author Amos Tutola (writer of My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts, as used by Brian Eno and David Byrne for their album title), plus more from acclaimed, previously Weird StoryBundle-featured World Fantasy Award nominee Leena Krohn, and a set of eerie short stories from Finnish literary notable Jyrki Vainonen.

Even more standout titles arrive with the four pieces of writing in the bonus tier, however, with Michael Cisco's sequel to The Divinity Student a good way to continue your addiction with his work, and VanderMeer himself providing Secret Lives - an eye-opening tome that "takes the facts of real life fantasy readers and uses them as the starting point for startling, funny, and rapturous secret lives."

And them there's the two cherries on the top of the pie - Stepan Chapman's The Troika, a Philip K Dick award winner that twins fantasy and science fiction in some genuinely interesting ways, and finally, Jeff VanderMeer's Komodo, a rare novella from the acclaimed compiler of this bundle himself that's never been available in standalone ebook form before. That's never, ever, ever. Impressed yet?
