Emperor Pirk and May 1st
If you happen to be in Tampere on April 30, go visit the stage of the old library house park at 4 PM to start the Vappu in an sfnal way.
Occasional fandom commentary, sometimes with pictures.
“Toni Jerrman has excellent taste and is willing to share his knowledge with others— —his comics articles are written with both fierce passion and solid professionalism— —comics have been part of Tähtivaeltaja for the 25 years of the publication. Jerrman has brought unknown but interesting comics to the attention of his readers, written about manga before the current enthusiasts were even born, and published a sizable amount of Finnish comics and illustrations.”
Usva 1/2006 is out. This issue’s theme is fears, with contributions from Petri Laine, Natalia Laurila & others. Haven’t had a chance to look inside yet (as it just was published on the web site), but what a beautiful cover!
There will be a special issue, Usva International, published for Finncon, that will contain Finnish sf short stories translated in English.
