Weird Universe is up

Alex Boese, Paul Di Filippo, and Chuck Shepherd recently launched a site (essentially, a group blog) that, given their fabulous products individually, promises to be lots of fun. It’s called “Weird Universe,” and it’s devoted to exploring “every aspect of a human and natural cosmos that is not only ‘stranger than we imagine, but stranger than we can imagine.'”

Alex Boese
Alex is best known as the curator of the Museum of Hoaxes, but he has also explored the world of weird science in his most recent book, Elephants on Acid: And Other Bizarre Experiments.

Paul Di Filippo
Paul has been paid to put weird ideas into fictional form for over thirty years, in his career as a noted science fiction writer. He has recently begun blogging on many curious topics with three fellow writers at The Inferior 4+1.

Chuck Shepherd
Chuck is the purveyor of News of the Weird, the syndicated column which for decades has set the gold-standard for reporting on oddities and the bizarre.

I’ve added it to my blogroll.

Updates: Others are pointing at WU and there are, of course, the links from the main authors (e.g., Alex Boese) (thanks, Liz).
