I was going to wait until there was a website to point to, but since that doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon, and the news has been out for a while, never mind. FINFAR, the Finnish society for science fiction and fantasy studies (founded this summer) will be launching an academic journal of Nordic sf research. The journal will be published online and the main language is English. It will contain peer-reviewed articles, essays, interviews, opinion pieces and academic book reviews.
The full press release contains more information about the journal and its advisory board, plus a naming contest, and can be found on Adam Roberts’ blog.
