Shaun’s Rambles 006: Interviewing the Fans — Jukka Halme

Leave a comment

What do Moomintrolls, Tolkien, 1978, and reindeer steaks have to do with Jukka Halme?  In my third Interviewing the Fans feature, I talk to Jukka Halme about becoming an sf/f fan, the works that influenced him, the changing technological landscape, and Finland.

We also talk briefly about the Helsinki bid for the 2017 Worldcon.  As a reminder, if you’re turning in a site selection ballot from home, they need to be in the hands of the site selection folks by August 10th. So you need to get your votes in ASAP!  Details here.

You can find out more about Jukka on his blog and his Twitter account.

Enjoy the episode!  You can download the MP3 here or stream the file below.
