Great drawings and odd stories


If you like drawings and strange but intriguing, even philosophical stories (I do), have a look at Mikko Metsähonkala‘s site In other wor(l)ds, an example below.

Something similar are the short stories by Villy Sørensen (1929-2001) who has been compared to Franz Kafka.

I still remember the staggering reading experience sometimes late 70’s. I got the Finnish translation of his first two books Strange Stories and Hamless Tales (in one volume, called Tarinoita in Finnish) in a second-hand book store. That is one of the few books I like to open again, after tens of years.

Today you can find his books via internet (or at the libraries in Finland), but you can also read some of his stories in Google Books.
