Mervyn Peake and Weird Tales magazine

It's great to see Mervyn Peake among the names nominated by readers of the magazine as "the weirdest of the weird: the most influentially strange authors, artists, film-makers, songwriters, and tale-spinners of all kinds to work their magic on the world in the 85 years since 1923 when Weird Tales was born". Among many others on the list are: Franz Kafka, J G Ballard, Neil Gaiman, Tim Burton, Roald Dahl, Salvador Dali, Michael Moorcock and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The full list can be seen here.
