I was delighted to have been a small part of getting these stories out into the light of day - but while I was technically an editor / language checker for this anthology, my "job" really didn't feel like work. I just sat and read this great collection of stories.

Every one of them drew me in almost from the first page, and every one of them gave me something new to think about, or wonder at, or wipe away a single glistening testosterone-laden manly tear. I can say it. These were great stories, t

This is a gloriously diverse book of speculative fiction, covering all aspects of the genre. The authors are all Finnish authors who have not been translated into English, and the many of the stories make me want to learn Finnish just so I can read more of the author's work! There is much beauty within, much that I'd like nothing I've read elsewhere, and the full gamut of emotions can be found between the covers of the book

If you like short form speculative fiction at all, I'd recommend.

I got this book at worldcon in Helsinki because I thought it was a shame to hear so much about Finish SFF and not actually read any (and it's surprisingly difficult to find any in translation) and I am extremely glad I did.

The books aim according to the foreward is to give English language readers a glimpse at just how varied Finnish language SFF is, and it definitely succeeds at that. Everything from hard SF to fantasy is covered. While most wouldn't feel out of place in any English language co

What an awesome book! Some of the stories in it were brilliant, leaving me craving more. Others were merely awesome or great, and only one or two were so bizarre, that they let me confused as to what exactly had happened in them. All in all, I heartily recommend this anthology that gives us non-Finnish people a taste of what is on offer in Finnish sci-fi and fantasy. *makes note to self to look up what else these authors have published in English*

Just what I needed, a sampler of Finnish sci-fi and fantasy stories. It's a mix of genres – some of them evolve from a historical background with their own twist, some resemble traditional folk tales, but I was pleased to find some science fiction among them too. Some motifs appear more than once – the sea seems to be a constant source of inspiration. The quality of the stories felt balanced, I don't have a clear favourite, but no dislikes either.
