Slipstream Literature

Description: "...this is a kind of writing which simply makes you feel very strange; the way that living in the twentieth century makes you feel, if you are a person of a certain sensibility."

This list is based on one created at Readercon 2007. I have added some later works that would also qualify and also corrected some egregious omissions. Thumbs up books you would recommend; thumbs down books not worth reading.

Explanations:

aulsmith (12): This is a good book, but I think it's fairly straight-forward horror, rather than slipstream
