Alarmingly Strange Stories

“The internet’s home for strange fiction!”

WELCOME! Since our re-branding in 2021 we’ve developed a new generation of fans and contributors!

What is all This?

TheWeirdcrap’s Alarmingly Strange Stories posted its first story in 1999 with the goal to provide non-censored fiction by amateur writers. Perhaps you wrote a piece of fiction for a class and thought it was pretty good. It’s a shame no one will ever read it except your professor or teacher. Well, this is your chance to share it with the world! We have a translator on each page to make it easy for someone from another country to enjoy your work!

Or, if you like to read and your sense of humor is just a little off-center, then this your home. But don’t stop with the current submissions go to the archive pages for more.

Got Something you want to promote?

Want to get the word out for your web site, a self-published book, or a spot on social media? gets about 50,000 page views a month, so let our traffic work for you by submitting your own piece of fiction. Include what you want us to say about you and include a link. We’ll put it in the “About the Author” section at the end of your story.

Someone told you about a story, and now you can’t find it?

Click the search icon on the upper right side of the navigation. You don’t need the exact title, just put in what you know. If you still can’t find it, send me an email, I can find it!
