(Oh–there it is. Finnish Weird. Popping up amongst the ‘shrooms.)

Finnish Weird now has a fruiting body: a one-off magazine that allows you to sample some of the best examples of this delectably strange Nordic truffle. Download these infectious spores or enjoy them right there online.

In addition to iconic Finnish writer Johanna Sinisalo’s editorial, “Rare Exports,” Finnish Weird includes an essay “Finnish Weird From the Land of the North” by Jussi K. Niemela and features Emmi Itaranta, Jenny Kangasvuo, and Tiina Raevaara. Fiction and interviews and essays all come with a great visual presentation, too.

Mentioned in the nonfiction is It Came From the North, an anthology of the Finnish fantastic edited by Desirina Boskovich from our own Cheeky Frawg Books. In honor of Finnish weird, we’ve discounted it for Kindle to $2.99 for one week only. If you’d prefer a different seller, we recommend Weightless (although we can’t discount that version).

So go read Finnish Weird and check out It Came From the North if you’re so inclined.

    I drop a comment when I like a article on a blog or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
    It is a result of the sincerness displayed in the article I browsed.
    And after this article Ecstatic Days ? Blog Archive ? Finnish Weird: It?s the Hot New
    Thing from the Cold Place. I was actually excited enough to drop a thought :-P I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay.
    Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of these remarks appear like
    they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I
    would like to follow anything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list the complete urls of your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
