“Restrained and vivid, poised and strange, Tidbeck, with her impossible harmonies, is a vital voice.” – China Mieville

“I can’t think of when I last read a collection that blew me away the way that Jagannath has, or one that’s left me somewhat at a loss to describe just how strange and beautiful and haunting these tales are.” – Elizabeth Hand (from her introduction)

JAGANNATH contains translated stories from Vem är Arvid Pekon? and new stories – both English originals and translations from Swedish – some of which have appeared in U.S. publications between 2010 and 2012.
