Co-existence Slawomir Mrozek :: A short fable about a diabolical house-guest. The Lady with the Medallion Andrzej Szczypiorski :: A gothic-decadent encounter with death, as recounted to modern and skeptica Devilish stories from Catholic Poland. The Lady with the Medallion Andrzej Szczypiorski :: A gothic-decadent encounter with death, as recounted to modern and skeptical police interrogation. The Greater Punishment Marek Huberath, :: Impressive and harrowing novella length treatment of horrific afterlife.
The almost viscerally uncomfortable descriptions bleed into surrealized echoes of all-too-recent interrogation and holocaust, but then it becomes increasingly clear that it's all in the service of a disagreeable polemic. A visionary and elaborately-wrought polemic, sure, but there's no escaping that it's essentially the literary equivalent of a Hell House. God, actually the exact equivalent, the more I think on it. Formidable but terrible, ultimately interesting and frustrating.
So perhaps, along with the similarly Polish Saragossa Manuscript , a reference point ofr the sort of thing Rosendorfer was attempting to recreate in The Architect of Ruins , which this seems to resemble promisingly, at least as far as a fragment of an untranslated novel can ever suggest its whole.

Poland seems to have a knack for the conversational ghost story, but none of the plots of these were all so memorable. He's got a great sense of dread and an absolutely burning sense of place and of the menace attached to a place that cements these as fantastic pieces. Plus, he has a knack for placing horror not outside society, in nature and the unknown, but close to home, in the backwash of modernity and the detritus of technological convenience.

Incidentally, Grabinski is in that narrow minority of writers here who hae actually seen English translation. So far it's just three of six books of stories, and a collected edition drawing from several from Dedalus. The Dark Domain, read it!
