:: ABOUT ::
At Dinosaur Bees: A Journal of the Carefully Strange, we think the carefully strange necessitates a sort of tight-rope walk between the familiar and the abyss. If the result is good, it allows neither the writer nor the reader to be lazy. Maybe the carefully strange doesn’t have an ego, yet remains intriguing, uncanny, sublime, striking, hilarious, awkward, heartbreaking, explosive, or whatever else. Maybe it de-familiarizes or strange-ifies without yelling about itself or giving itself away.
Is that even what we mean to say? We’d love for you to show us what we might mean. See our SUBMISSIONS page for more info on that.
Since there are so many legendary forerunners to today’s carefully strange, each issue of Dinosaur Bees will pay homage to one of them (usually a dead one, though not always) by humbly featuring a piece of their work in our Homage to the Strange Spirits section.
