When I was in Warsaw with Jeff Vandermeer I got interested in European (specifically Polish) genre fiction, and during that weekend Jeff told me that he and his wife Ann would be spending some time in Finland the following week. Finland, he told me, has the most amazing SF community. You should definitely go to Finncon some time.
Well, perhaps one day I will. In the mean time, I was very interested to read Jeff’s reports of their investigations and the great Finnish writers he discovered while he was there. For further reading, Jeff has a bunch of links rounding up all his Finnish investigations.
