A STRANGER CAME ASHORE by Mollie Hunter
Released: Oct. 1, 1975

"The final struggle comes on the magical Up Helly Aa, the last night of the Christmas season, with Robbie dodging the shadows of spirit trows whose night it is to roam, Nicol assuming a superhuman strength derived from his role and guise in the ancient celebration, and Finn Learson turning withered, twisted and very old before their eyes in a scene that will make yours stare."
