Re: Weird Fiction
It's an amusing little conceit. I recall something of the same sort being done for sf in one of the Year's Best anthologies back in the '70s, I believe. Can't recall for certain who the writer was, though....
Of course, the actual etymology of the word puts both ideas quite out of countenance, as it meant fate or destiny. (It derives its adjectival meaning from the Norns or Fates, as in the weird sisters in Macbeth; eventually it became associated with that which was uncanny, etc.).
