Strange Tales from the North

Portals to another world

Eight fantastic stories from a shadow Copenhagen – past, present and future – inspired by amazing artworks.

Otto Frello (1924-2015) was a Danish painter of fantastic scenes who lived in the centre of Copenhagen for most of his life.

Billy O’Shea is an Irish writer of fantasy and speculative fiction, and a long-time admirer of Frello’s work.

Both of them are concerned with opening doorways to other worlds, for the rest of us to step through and explore.
