Helix's Egocentric Speech to Imaginary Friends -

Writing is not Reality. If I write here, that I got rid of a stupid relationship, nobody of you hypothetic readers should think that a) I really ever had one 2) I really got rid of it. The only thing that is true, is that it is impossible. I am angry to myself to have let things go so far that I've lost my wild and independent nature, which I had acquired as a result of hard practise! So, my invisible readers, never tell about your love affairs on the Internet without remembering that in that...

Shivani's Kitchen -

From New York Times interview Anne Enright's Booker-winning novel The Gathering (2007) fell into my hands last Wednesday, and since then I've been wondering about her talent, the cruel precision with words. Now since the 1990s, when Irish writing was my full time business, I have taken my distance, and cannot really remember if I read her early stuff back then. Something in her style reminds me of the Irish radical feminists I met in the flesh in the early 90s - there is a passionately angry...

Mervi's Book reviews -

The third Fiction River subscription drive at Kickstarter is alive. It contains very nice stretch goals which means that the more people subscribe, the more books we subscribers get. Fiction River is an original short story series with six issues a year. The theme varies every time and so does the genre. I’ve enjoyed every […]

Istori -

Despite of numerous appeals, demonstrations and strong critisism among the specialists and media (in Finland and abroad), today the Finnish Parliament will put the so called Lex Nokia to the vote in the plenary session. EDIT: The Government porposal was approved some time ago in a 96-56 vote, with 47 parlamentarians absent. "Lex Nokia", because the whole idea of the law, let alone big parts of the text itself, has been put together by the reps of the Nokia company. Also in the Finnish media...

Ever since my change of job last summer and the fact that the new work resides physically quite far away has naturally changed my commuting routines completely; No more bus or train rides to the city center and back, usually with magazines and books to read and music and podcasts in my ears. No more handy time off both work and home for personal notes in journal, or emails. Now it has been roughly one hour car trip one way every day, only occasionally broken with days on the train. As the...

outrageous outings -

three years ago i was quite in tune with my inner bookworm judging from a little note i wrote about admiration . nevertheless, being the one-click addict that i am, my amazon shipments have lately included a couple of memoirs – literature i knew to steer clear of before. judging from how i feel right now, i probably should have kept on avoiding them. since i never really discuss books here, this may seem an odd way to start – although i am not promising any continuance – but here goes...

Leean lukupäiväkirja -

From the back: "When this fortress-like country recently opened the door to a crack to foreign investment, a Canadian cartoonist Guy Delisle found himself in its capital of Pyongyang on a work visa for a French film animation company, becoming one of the few Westerners to witness current conditions in the surreal showcase city." Surreal you would describe this comic book, when you read about Guy's experiences. It starts right in the airport, which looks like a modern building. But people wander...

Sodan hymni ja teknologian hyvyyden perään kysely antaa Bloodnetin ja Bladerunnerin mielikuvituksen hyväillä; Isaac Asimov, Stanislav Lem, Philip K.

Got a text message from Jose. He's in Karlsruhe. He had posted me a comment which I didn't know. Read it when got home from work. Now there is a new question rising: I Jose real? Because he is such a good friend. Or is he fiction, a novel or a short story character that I have invented just not to sound so weird, writing 'to myself'? How can we know that? My son told me he often misses the beginning of his lectures because it takes so long to decide what to wear! I wish I was late from work for...

July wasn't a great reading month, but it's Summer, there's so much other stuff to do in addition to reading. 76. Tiina Raevaara: Korppinaiset Tämä romaani on itsenäinen jatko kirjalle Yö ei saa tulla . Päähenkilöt ovat samat, mutta tilanne on hyvin erilainen. Romaanissa käsitellään kuolemaa, kuoleman läheisyyttä, ja lintuja. Olen pitänyt näistä kummastakin romaanista todella paljon ja myös suositellut niitä sisarelleni. 77.- 78.

February was a much slower reading month than January, mostly because the book I read or was reading didn't grab me that much, or in one case I'm still slowly reading and savouring a book that I'll probably finish this month. 16. Ekaterina Sedia: The Secret History of Moscow This book is set in Moscow in the 1990s, where people are suddenly turning into birds. A small group sets to investigate this mystery and to find one woman's missing sister. During their investigation, they find an...

Scrabble -pelissä itselläni on lähes aina ongelmia keksiä sanoja, kun laudalle eksyy kirjaimia b, c, d, f, g, y ja ö. Ajattelin helpottaa asiaa keräämällä valmiin listan sanoja. Aloitetaan f-kirjaimella. Huomenna tai ylihuomenna lisään uusia sanoja muista kirjaimista. Palaute ja kysymykset sanoista ovat tervetulleita:) Pieni moka tuli, poistin listalta sanat, joissa oli kaksi f-kirjainta. Ajattelin, että eihän semmoista sanaa voi muodostaa, koska on vain yksi f-kirjain. Väärin...

Bigotry Unspecified -

Managed to take the girlfriend out to dinner last night and keep it almost civil too. Civil in the sense 'not to talk of things that upset either of us' (and 'not to mock the other diners and waiter too loudly to ashame the girlfriend'). Really nice and greasy foods. And wine. And even a shrimp-appetizer. Lucky we were too stuffed to eat dessert and I have money to feed myself this weekend. I also had an idea of sorts. The girlfriend and I have often been in disagreement of our ways to handle...

I'm not going to do any numbered listing, just comment on the most memorable reads with some silly categories. Best YA Janni Lee Simner's Bones of Faerie (reread) and Faerie Winter Set in a postacopalyptic world where a war between humans and faerie damaged both worlds, and left wild magic among humans.

Leean lukupäiväkirja -

The Mammoth Book of Golden Age Science Fiction Täytyypä tunnustaa: en lukenut tätä kokoelmaa kokonaan. Niin kuin nimestä voi päätellä, siihen on kerätty joukko vanhoja sf-tarinoita 20-40-luvuilta. Oli ne vähän vanhanaikaisia välillä, ei siinä mitään, mutta kimpaannuin siitä miten naisia oli kuvattu. Yhdessäkin tarinassa tavataan aviopari, joiden avioliitto-onnen salaisuudeksi paljastetaan sellainen seikka, että vaimo on oppinut tottelemaan miestään nopeasti ja vastaan...

Woolly Mammoth (Source: blog.devonanddorsetcottages.co.uk) This Mammoth, which is now alive only in Ice Age movie and children's story book, may resurrect to life using cloning technique, said a Japanese researcher. All he needs now is a healthy cell frozen in Siberia (he is flying there soon). If he fails, he will beg to some Russian scientists who have already found some. Science fiction? Still yes, but to my surprise the target timeline to make it non-fiction is as early as 5 years! (I do...
