Abstract: This essay examines the relationship between weird fiction and forms of realist practice. It argues that realism’s concerns with exteriority and detail make it peculiarly suitable for (and receptive to) ‘weirding’, a claim explored in readings of fiction by Robert Aickman (1914–1981) and M. John Harrison (b.1945).
