In Dead Genesis Split Series #2, we dive into the human mind – and beyond!
Marko Latva-Nikkola offers a fair share of pitch black horror in his story “Yövieraat” (The Night Guests). A man rents a flat without reading the small print on the contract. The tenant must, the paper says, “hand over the apartment for night guests during the housing company’s parties”. And the guests do arrive, each night. But why did all the ducks disappear from the park? Was it because of the swans?
Ville Vuorenmaa’s “Hyllyt kaatuu” (Shelves Fall Down) is a delicate, poetic story about a girl with too many thoughts in her head. A pencil sharpener rips a hole in a painting. In TV, Miss Marple is trying to learn Finnish. The ultimate question is yet to be answered: Jesus, yoga, or Joy Division?
EEVA MELTIO: SAARI
ISBN 978-952-67792-2-5 // DG-oo8
44 pages // Black-and-white // In Finnish (with English translations)
Soft-cover // 105 x 148 mm
Eeva Meltio’s Saari is a fable from the darker side. A child in his mother’s womb refuses to come out, even though he is told how beautiful it is out there. Everything would, he says, just dissappoint. A crow, frustrated in the situation, threatens to peck him out. Maybe the fear of losing an eye or two will encourage the brat to face the world.
