Turku Mafia Renascent

Well, it’s been three times now, with a steady core group and a few new faces each time, so I dare say the Turku pub meetings are a tradition again.

Tonight, there were a couple of Danish fanzines to be read (souvenirs from Snorfcon) in addition to the beer, food and conversation. I gave out the “mini-zine” I’d made just for this occasion—a nicely formatted printout of a short story, actually. If you missed it, the short story was Shibuya no Love by Hannu Rajaniemi, and it can be read at the Futurismic web site. Go take a look, it is excellent. Too bad it isn’t eligible for Atorox (it’s in English and published by a foreign webzine), because it is one of the better short stories I’ve read in a while.

PS If you happen to be in the Turku area, don’t forget the sf jumble on Sunday (at noon)!
