This rich collection of Finnish stories, brought together by acclaimed author Johanna Sinisalo, includes some of the biggest names in Finnish literature! Aino Kallas, Mika Waltari, Tove Jansson, Aleksis Kivi, Arto Paasilinna, Bo Carpelan and Leena Krohn are significant historical or contemporary mainstream authors whose stories delve into the fantastical, while Pasi Jääskeläinen, Jyrki Vainonen, Johanna Sinisalo, and others represent the new "Finnish Weird".

Twenty stories by twenty authors, from 1870 to 2003, will transport you from the forest of Estonia to inside the human body, from the days of the Vikings to modern day Finland. The diverse selection of stories ranges widely in setting and style, but has in common a characteristic Finnish feeling for nature and examination of the effects of war.
