Some tales that really stood out for me were:
"The Monster" by Satu Waltari, an incredibly inventive tale about a girl's dreams.
Olli Jalonen's "Chronicles of the State," a splendid examination of the psychology of tyranny, as a reporter uses a Chernobyl-type incident to rise to absolute power.
Pasi Jaaskelainen's "A Zoo from the Heaves" is about using the language of fantasy to work through a traumatic childhood. Perhaps the best story in the book.
Sari Peltoniemi's also uses the "legends" of childhood in a clever way. Jyrki Vainonen's "The Explorer" takes the reader on a unique expedition.
Overall this was a very inventive and diverse anthology of fascinating stories.
