(0:15:18) Part Three of the Outer Dark Symposium on the Greater Weird 2018, Saturday March 24 at Winchester Mystery House (San Jose, CA), begins with the third of four panels ‘The Frame is the Landscape’ , moderated by Alvaro Zinos-Amaro and featuring Philip Fracassi, Rebecca J Allred, Michael Griffin, Liv Rainey-Smith, and Eric Schaller. According to poet Robinson Jeffers: “The tides are in our veins, we still mirror the stars, life is your child, but there is in me / Older and harder than life and more impartial, the eye that watched before there was an ocean.” Unlike science fiction and fantasy, much (though not all) of Weird Fiction opts for realistic settings instead of elaborate world-building. Can fiction that presents this world, with no explicit markers of otherness, yet steeped in an imagined otherworldly subjectivity, exemplify The Weird? A stranger sees the world through what we might think of as strange eyes. Does the so-called natural world carry the seeds of The Weird within it, or is it our contaminated gaze that transforms it? The episode concludes with Readings by Eric Schaller (1:02:00), Rebecca J. Allred (01:07:04) and Sumiko Saulson (01:20:40).
Stay tuned for the fourth and final installment of The Outer Dark Symposium 2018. Thank you to all our attending and supporting members, sponsors, and Indiegogo campaign supporters who helped make Something Weird happen for a second year.
