A Polish Book of Monsters
"A Polish Book of Monsters: Five Dark Tales from Contemporary Poland," edited and translated by Michael Kandel, is an anthology of speculative fiction by some of the best Polish SF and fantasy writers - Marek S. Huberath, Andrzej Sapkowski, Tomasz Kołodziejczak, Andrzej Zimniak, and Jacek Dukaj. The five tales encompass everything from high fantasy to hard-core science fiction, and mixtures somewhere between the two. General readers as well as those interested in Polish and Slavic literature will find these “dark tales” strangely illuminating.

Michael Kandel’s superbly translated collection of science fiction and fantasy stories "A Polish Book of Monsters" shows us that the line between good and evil, between human and monstrous, can be perilously thin.
