VanderMeer on Findom
SF Site has just published a column by Jeff VanderMeer, on which he discusses (among other things) his visit to Finland as Guest of Honor at Finncon 2006. As everyone who met him there already knows, he liked the Finnish fandom quite a bit, and on the column he says more nice things, like this:
I was impressed with how knowledgeable Finnish fantasy fans were and how seriously they took books and the authors they enjoyed. I have rarely if ever been confronted by readers who knew so much about what they loved.Along with the column there are also three interviews conducted in Finland. So, go read Jeff’s words and listen to Jukka Halme, Toni Jerrman and Niko Aula (of Loki books) talk about sf.
