Elizabeth Hand

A dark, drug fuelled vortex, set in the bleak haunting environs of Finland and Iceland. A world of grotesque 'murderabilia' photography traded on the black market, and satanic cult music groups that mimic Norse mythology. Macabre, and at times an uncomfortable read, this will have you gripped to the very end.
