    1 thought on “Things from the Flood”

    1. Things from the Flood picks up where Tales from the Loop left off. When I originally decided to buy these two books via Kickstarter, I didn't expect them to contain any sort of narrative, but they do, and it works.When I first saw Simon Stålenhag's pictures combining science fiction elements with rural 70s or 80s Sweden, I fell for the enigmatic atmosphere. What sort of world was this? Clearly not historical Sweden, but still uncannily recognisable.Usually, when I find myself drawn to the inexp [...]

    2. Ett enastående verk. Vackra och otroligt stämningsfulla målningar och små berättelser skapar en fantasieggande värld att försvinna in i.

    3. Når inte riktigt upp till föregångarens höjder, men det här är fortfarande extremt bra science fiction. Precis som i ur Varselklotet är det också en väldigt fin barndomsskildring, denna gång under nittiotalet. Sidenote: jag har varit med och Kickstartat rollspelet till Stålenhags värld som förlaget kommer att ge ut i vår, och är duktigt pepp.

    4. A somewhat different, darker feel than the first book, but I still liked it overall. Simon's art is beautiful and evocative as always.

    5. Simply amazing. You can see the details of the paintings very well. Prepare to be in awe of his ability to observe the world around him and recreate it very realistically (or surrealistically, with the robots and dinosaurs), not just how different surfaces look matte, shiny, bright, slippery, round or sharp, but also the impressionistic quality of human vision in the peripheries and at distance. He is a very good scenery painter, and his imagination is just amazing. I was also surprised by how g [...]

    6. Unlike any other book I've seen. It is hard to say whether this is an "art book" or a set of short stories, a graphic novel, or a picture book for adults. That sort of ambiguity always attracts me!Ultimately, I'd have to say this is an "art book" because the artwork comes first. The artist created the digital paintings first. They all mix images of Swedish countryside in the 1980s with robots and other futuristic apparatus. But there wasn't originally any real backstory. He later wrote stories b [...]

    7. Stålenhag's oversized followup to the trippy 'Tales From the Loop' dips deeper into his unique approach to art and science fiction, continuing the slow-burn story of an 'event' that occurred in Sweden in the late 1990s. The storytelling is minimalist and effective, but it's really Stålenhag's sci-fi meets suburbia full page artwork that makes this so wonderfully off-kilter. I may not know art, but I know what I like - and this is it. Big time.

    8. I loved this. It continues the story from Tales from the Loop, taking the protagonist from childhood to early adolescence. It shares many of the qualities of the first book, but it has a slightly darker, eerier tone, which is fitting since the main character is older. I think the text in this book is slightly stronger than the text in the first book, and the art overall might be a little bit weaker. Not by much, though—there are just as many images in this book that have really stuck with me.

    9. The pages of this sequel are suffused with a palpable melancholy from the divorce to the vagabonds and on through the machine cancer and clean up. “It was a sense of something having been lost, but also a sense that I was already forgetting what it was.”

    10. Stunning follow up. Once again it’s not the art but the concepts that keep me hooked. It’s an alien invasion of an altogether more plausible kind.

    11. the art in this book is so beautiful. and the characters have more life than you would expect for being barely sketched. wonderful bit of world building.

    12. I enjoyed this much more than the previous book in the series. The narrative had a definite continuity and the paintings were incredible.

    13. Not as good as the first one but still quite fantastic. The rating might go up with a re-read as I read it back to back after the first one. I might have overdosed a little on Stålenhag by then. But like the first one, its a book I will probably take out quite regulary in years to come for a chanse to dive into the art.

    14. Strangely familiar childhood that never was. Perhaps my post-soviet memories are to blame: strange masses of metal rusting away in the background? Check! Abandoned factories, overgrown and wild, still covered in propagandist murals? Check! Mysterious research institute where your dad is officially employed? Check! Strange sadness for the dying world, the experiment that failed and left us all empty-handed? Check! I love how documentalistic this work of fiction is Nobody paints a dark day in Nove [...]

    15. Stålenhag juxtaposes mysterious high tech artifacts against the mundane and easily recognizable to create a sense of wonder and unease.
