This review is from: Filtered Light & Other Stories, The Complete Collection (Kindle Edition)
I've been a fan of Mister Hietala's short stories for a long time. The author is a Finn and often he tells tales from his homeland where the winters are cold and long and people have lots of time to think about darkness as they huddle around a fire, while outside a wind from the North pole batters on the door. This collection has a common theme of the supernatural, not horror, more eerie. Often, too, there will be an underlying pathos. I particularly like 'Filtered Light', 'The Summerhouse', 'Over the Bridge' and the award-winning 'Lord Stanton's Horse'. There's something for everybody here. A book to dip into, often.
