Finnish Science Fiction and Fantasy
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).
