Margaret Atwood—the author best known in sf circles for her dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale and the more recent Oryx and Crake—will be coming to Turku for the Turku International Book Fair (October 5–7, 2007). I doubt she’ll be discussing talking squids in space, though.
Jussi’s site is an essential reference for anybody who wants to find links to Finnish sf societies, fanzines, and other resources, or search the extensive bibliography of sf published in Finnish.

Saija and Eemeli’s wedding was celebrated on Saturday at Suomenlinna by a host of relatives and assorted fandom. Congratulations to the happy couple!
And also good luck with their next project—making sure we don’t run out of fen in the years to come! There were many helpful suggestions regarding the naming of the twins, but I’m happy to report that even though Eemeli said some of them were pretty close to the ones they’re actually considering, he promised “Destructotron” won’t be a candidate (might make a good nickname, though).
Update: I posted a couple of pictures on Flickr, if you want to see more of the wedding.
