Issue 15 is also known as the "Icelandic Issue." Printed in Iceland, half of the stories are written by actual Icelandic writers. And the kicker? It also comes with an Icelandic tabloid mini-mag filled with words you won't understand and images that speak for themselves.
Included in this issue are new stories from Roddy Doyle, Steven Millhauser, and many exceptional newcomers. Hardcover and bound in fine cloth, this issue makes us want to sit by a fireplace on a snowy day.

Roseann the Librarian LOVES Mcsweeney's Sep 5, 2007
Highly, highly recommended!! I am not a huge fan of short stories, but this book has changed my mindset. It is by far my most favorite of the few Mcsweeney's editions I have read, to date. I enjoyed every one, but particularly "Uninvited" which is written from a naughty child's perspective. Bravo. The stories by Icelandic authors are quite vivid and a little unorthodox compared to some of the stories Americans would write....I enjoyed every one! A definite must-have for the short-story reader or collector.
