No, I don’t expect “true fantasy” from the event. But wouldn’t it be nice to actually have fantasy authors and illustrators design the thing, addressing the themes mentioned above…
Occasional fandom commentary, sometimes with pictures.
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.
