Yesterday saw the second gathering of the brave new Turku mafia. There was quite a nice turnout (11 persons) and a couple of new faces, which is always a delight. (Hi to Matti, Katja and Aatu!)
Topics discussed included (but were not limited to) the educational aspects of tentacles, whether making a good PKD movie necessitates throwing away the good PKD book, Ford Prefect's freckles and the current status of the Lahti fandom. Greetings were sent to Helsinki (which had a concomitant mafia evening). A couple of fanzines were browsed (most interest generated Emerald City which had in the latest issue an article about the Finnish sf fandom).
The next gathering will be on November 4th. Be there!
