Publisher's Summary

A child is born in a tin can. A switchboard operator finds himself in hell. Three corpulent women float somewhere beyond time. Welcome to the weird world of Karin Tidbeck, the visionary Swedish author of literary sci-fi, speculative fiction, and mind-bending fantasy who has captivated fans around the world.

Originally published by the tiny press Cheeky Frawg - the passion project of Ann and Jeff VanderMeer - Jagannath has been celebrated by listeners and critics alike, with rave reviews from major outlets and support from lauded peers like China Mieville and even Ursula K. Le Guin herself.

These are stories in which fairies haunt quiet towns, and an immortal being discovers the nature of time - stories in which anything is possible.

Always unique, usually quite good, sometimes meh

All of these stories are weird. I thought some were excellent, whether because they were wrenching and heartbreaking or humorous and dry, or mysterious and captivating--sometimes all at the same time! A couple of the stories I found tedious, but overall the quality is high, and the author's sheer inventiveness made me want to keep listening even when I wasn't engaged with the characters in a given story. I'd recommend these to anyone with who tolerates or better yet embraces the strange and original.

Could have been exciting

This is a collection of mildly interesting new stories that visit old myths. It might be great for someone who is already obsessed with the folklore, but the stories themselves didn’t engage me much without extra world-building. Without teasing out the rules of reality, the stories felt a bit empty. I couldn’t connect to characters who didn’t care to question the way I would have in their situation.
