About this item

Not only is the mainstream canon of Indian fiction in English growing at pace, so too, are more unusual, peripheral narratives.Weird Fiction in New India argues that it is the advent of "New India", its economic prosperity, its growing (reading) middle classes and a new sense of innovation in literary production, which has led to a proliferation of "weird" fiction.

This book investigates fiction in English, written within and published from India, since 2000. It focuses on the genres of Science Fiction and Fantasy, and also introduces the term Bharati Fantasy. In addition to insightful interviews with authors and publishers of weird fiction from India, it utilizes cultural studies theories and stylistic analyses to offer a compelling study of contemporary fiction against the socio-cultural backdrop of New India.Weird Fiction in New India is essential reading for scholars interested in contemporary literature, world literature in English, post-colonial studies and science fiction and fantasy.
