About The Book

**The first true celebration of contemporary Nordic science fiction, fantasy and horror! **

Tales of the dark, fantastical and delightfully strange from the best voices in Nordic fiction.

Storytelling has been a major force in the Nordic countries for thousands of years, from the epic Icelandic Sagas to best-selling crime with a noir flair. This anthology collects stories by the best names in Nordic speculative fiction, many of which are appearing in English for the first time.

Across dark dystopian sci-fi, mythical fantasy, and terrifying horror, from the rational to the eccentric, these stories combine a deep sense of place with social criticism, themes of loneliness and identity, and the concern for humanity’s impact on the wilderness.

Stories by John Ajvide Lindqvist, Maria Haskins, Karin Tidbeck, Kaspar Colling Nielsen, Jakob Drud, Lene Kaaberbøl, Rakel Helmsdal, Johann Thorsson, Tone Almhjell, Alexander Dan Vilhjálmsson, Tor Åge Bringsværd, Thore Hansen, Margrét Helgadóttir, Johanna Sinisalo, Hannu Rajaniemi and Emmi Itäranta.
