When I was younger and more patient, I’d read every story in an anthology. Now, as a grumpy old woman, I only read the stories by authors whose work I’ve enjoyed previously, or is on my wishlist. Such is the case with Fearie Tales

In Come Unto Me, John Ajvide Lindqvist has created a wonderfully Gothic, scary read, featuring a type of fairytale character I’ve never before encountered. There’s some freaky shiz going on here, and it’s fascinating stuff. Best of all, it tides us over until the author’s next novel is released in English, whatever and whenever that may be. Bring it on!
