Weird Fantasy, also known as Weird Fiction, is a sub-genre of speculative fiction that was originally popularized in the United States by H. P. Lovecraft.

The first prozine to contain a fair number of weird fantasy stories was the short-lived The Thrill Book (1919). The first prozine to be devoted entirely to weird fantasy was Weird Tales, which began in 1923. It has been with us, off and on, since then.

There were also two comic books titled Weird Fantasy, the first from EC Publications (1950-1953), the second from Russ Cochran/Gemstone Publishing (1992-1998).
