“Happy endings in real life are usually just stages on the way to a more final and less cheerful end.”
An award-winning fantasy short story which takes as many twists and turns as a plate of Finnish spaghetti.
Marred, unfortunately, by an awkward translation into English. The occasional brilliant word pictures—“thunder-colored BMW”—scattered among many less apt, in fact confusing verbiage.
A fresh venture into a world where much is not what it seems.
Many thanks to Tor Books for bringing these jewels to print here.
