CONGRATULATIONS TO TAHTIVAELTAJA ON REACHING 100
Congrats to Toni Jerrman and the staff of Tahtivaeltaja for producing their 100th issue. As many readers of this blog know, I am a huge fan of this Finnish pop culture/genre magazine. Many times I've lamented the fact we don't have an English-language version of Tahtivaeltaja, with its mix of a punk-pop-low/high culture mentality. Anyway, congrats to Toni. He and his staff put a huge amount of work into this publication.
This issue of Tahtivaeltaja includes an insert pamphlet of the Finnish version of King Squid, using John Coulthart's layout and translated into Finnish by Johanna Vainikainen-Uusitalo, the talented translator of City of Saints & Madmen. (She also added a couple of entries to the bibliography.) When we have another book sale in a month or so, I'll be able to offer some copies of the Finnish King Squid for VanderCompletists.
The 100th issue also includes a long interview with me conducted by that collosus among men, a genuine treasure and frog wrestler, Jukka Halme (who, by the way, you definitely need to help send to Japan). JAPAN DEMANDS JUKKA HALME (and Australia would also probably really like Johan Anglemark).
Anyway, congrats to all involved!
