THE DEDALUS BOOK OF FINNISH FANTASY



Not only is Johanna Sinisalo an edgy and uncompromising novelist, but she has also now edited an anthology of Finnish fiction from one of my favorite publishers in the world: Dedalus. I have ordered this book and hope to read it before I leave for Europe and Finncon. In the meantime, here's all the information you might need to look into it yourself.

And more on Finncon shortly.

Partial Recall has this to say about the antho.

Here's the Strange Horizons review.

Here's the listing on the Dedalus site and their description:


The Dedalus Book of Finnish Fantasy
Edited By: Johanna Sinisalo

The latest volume in the Dedalus European fantasy series, this anthology of short stories includes a wide range of texts covering the period from nineteenth century until today. The richness and diversity of the stories reflects the long tradition of fantasy in Finnish literature, ranging from the classics to experimental literature, from satire to horror. This is the first collection of Finnish short stories of its kind and almost all are translated into English for the first time. It includes work by the leading Finnish authors Aino Kallas, Mika Waltari, Arto Paasilinna, Bo Carpelan, Pentti Holappa, and Leena Krohn as well as contributions by the rising stars of Finnish fiction.

I read two books from Dedalus just the other week. Hermann Ungar's The Class, The Maimed.

I'm definitely up to trying more stuff from this publisher.
