Blog entry at The Guardian:-

Anyone here like Bizarro fiction?

I've read and enjoyed some books by D. Harlan Wilson, but that's pretty much the beginning and end of my acquaintance with the genre.

I remember Gary McMahon being impressed by "Vacation" when he reviewed it for Whispers.

I was one of the Founding Fathers of bizarro fiction, six young mavericks knowing only that BOOKS WERE INSTRUMENTS OF TERRORISM.

I assume the term 'bizarro' is lifted from comicbooks..?
DC have many alt. universe (that is 'other' than mainstream superhero comics) stories about evil Bizarro Superman from bizarro world.

A quick googling tells me it's even much older than I'd thought!
