Desirina Boskovich writes, "It Came From the North, my brand new e-anthology of Finnish speculative fiction, is now available from Cheeky Frawg Books. Cheeky Frawg, a small press run by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, is carving out a big name for itself as a quality purveyor of weird fiction and speculative literature in translation, with recent titles including the widely-praised Jagganath by Karin Tidbeck and very well-received Datura by Leena Krohn."
With contributors such as Johanna Sinisalo, Leena Krohn, Hannu Rajaniemi, Jyrki Vainonen, and Pasi Ilmari Jääskeläinen, It Came From the North features fifteen odd and lovely stories ranging from the downright fantastical to the merely uncanny. The gorgeous cover art is by Jeremy Zerfoss, illustrator extraordinaire. Available as an ebook only.
Desirina is a great writer in her own right (see Deus Ex Arca), and an incisive critic (she was one of my most promising Clarion students out of a very good class indeed), and I'm very excited indeed to see her editorial debut.
