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.

Wil Wheaton's 2017 standalone novelette Dead Trees Give No Shelter is a beautiful, spooky horror story in the vein of Stranger Things, following Jay Turner as he returns to the small Ohio town where his baby brother was murdered, 20 years before, to witness the execution of his killer.

Kudos to those of us who have chosen a less wasteful third option to “paper or plastic” at the supermarket or club stores. Tote bags are reusable, but they can be a pain to tote around. Here’s an upgrade to that planet-saving measure. The Club Cart Lotus Trolley Bag is that rare tote you’ll want […]
