The Dedalus Book of Dutch Fantasy is the most ambitious and wide-ranging anthology of Dutch fiction ever to appear in English, and reads like the Who's Who of Dutch Literature, with stories by the undisputed contemporary masters such as Gerard Reve and Harry Mulisch, and classic authors such as Couperus, Van Schendel and Vestdijk, as well as many of the rising stars of the younger generation; Frans Kellendonk, A.F.TH. Van Der Heijden and P.F. Thomese. The stereotype of the Dutch that most immediately springs to mind is that of a clean, orderly, and down-to-earth people. Richard Huijing reveals the other side of this society; that of a dark netherworld of the macabre, the weird, the perverted, the violent and the fancifully impossible conjured up by a host of the finest writers in the Dutch language of the last hundred years.
