Autumn books

Here in Finland 6% of the population speak Swedish as their mother tongue. 300 000 people. A fairly large portion of these write or have written books. The two largest Finnish-Swedish publishing houses are called Schildts and Söderströms.

This autumn there is an interesting antology being published that is called Mandomsprov (”Test of Manhood”). My friend Philip Teir is one of the editors of it, and I’m looking forward to reading the texts in it, which are rather good according to what I’ve heard. If you follow this link, you can see the entire Book catalog of Schildts publishing house. It opens up in a pfd-document.

Looking forward to the Book Fair in October. Haven’t really studied the contents of it yet, but it’s usually a pretty good weekend. Anybody want to tag along?
