Finnish Science Fiction and Fantasy

Over at Wired, Bruce Sterling highlights some science fiction and fantasy from Finland that’s available in English.

Hannu Rajaniemi, a Finnish writer who has been living in Scotland, made 
a major three book deal with British Gollancz about a year and a half 
ago. The first book, “The Quantum Thief”, will be out in September.

The Tiptree-award winning Johanna Sinisalo has a short story called 
”Bear’s Bride” in the anthology “The Beastly Bride” edited by Ellen 
Datlow and Terri Windling.

Tiina Raevaara has published a novel and a short story collection which 
both have clear speculative fiction elements.

J. Pekka Mäkelä has already published four SF books and translated a lot 
more (e.g. by Philip K. Dick and Sean Stewart). Link to his short story 
”Thirty More Years” in pdf-format can be found on Finnish Writers web page.

Remember to also check this great episode of Tommi Musturi’s comic 
Walking with Samuel (no words, just pictures).
