I'm heading for Turku on Friday, in order to participate some sekret shindig later that day, followed by few mandatory Book Fair appearances on Saturday. I'll be moderating a panel on Small Press Publishing (13.10) and interviewing author J. Pekka Mäkelä (14.40) then. Should be fun. Just read J. Pekka's new novel Nedut and liked it a lot.
This is however almost only like a prelude to Helsinki Book Fair in late-October, where I'll be intervewing Juha-Pekka Koskinen, Anne Leinonen, Eija Lappalainen and Ville Vuorela, not to mention moderating a panel on... Jeezus Kuristus, Definitions of SF and fantasy? Why? Well see.
I've been meaning to report about Eurocon, which all things considered was a resoundingly fun and joyous occasion, but after the
matkakuume flu that took better part of the fpollowinf week, I've been mostly concentrating on things more mundane. Occasionally one must. But I'll decypher my notes from the journey next week. Unless something really weird happens. Promise. As Pølse is my wittness.
We did some apartment gazing the other day (Wednesday). The building reached its high point (I have no idea what "harjakaiset" is in English) and the builders had a little soirée, followed by chance to see ones apartment. We ate some silicon carrion and listened to this
extremely funny comedian (Sari edit) loathsome bore as well as some accordion music. Yes, that. Really.
But the apartment is looking nice. Especially the living room, which looks larger than we imagined and maybe even hoped for. The shape of the room is just something we really have think about. A lot. It's long. Maybe with bookshelf wallpaper and some bold colours, like grey?
