Unsheathe your eldritch runesword!

Burst forth from your grave!

Gun the thrusters on your starfighter like the laser-bats of Moonfort-Sigma are closing on your six!

Agent of Weird is a regular newsletter for anyone who writes and loves fantasy, horror and sci-fi (and every slippery subgenre in between).

It’s written by Alec Worley, the award-lacking veteran author of stories for Warhammer, Star Wars, Judge Dredd and a bunch of other stuff.

Whether you work (or want to work) in comics, prose, screenplays, or psionic thought-dramas for the audience of pixies that live in your head, you’ll find something here that’ll help you develop your craft, better understand your genre, and make you realise that you’re probably not doing things quite as badly as you think…

Stay up-to-date
