Bizarro Fiction is a contemporary literary genre known for high weirdness. As the print media equivalent of the cult film, bizarro fiction strives to be not only strange but also thought-provoking and fun to read.
Despite reveling in its weird, often surreal, elements, bizarro fiction has more in common with speculative fiction such as science fiction, fantasy, and horror than the avant-garde literary movements such as Dadaism or Surrealism with which it is often associated. Most Bizarro fiction takes place in a dreamlike alternate reality where the unexpected, unpredictable, unfathomable, or plain horrifying is commonplace.
Although the genre-denying Bizarro authors are often underground outsiders in the literary world, they have gained respect in the publishing world, garnering praise from a number of major authors.
