Howdy doodly!

My name is Sakari, and I'm a 29 year old Finnish male. I live in Helsinki, Finland, with my adorable girlfriend. I nerd around computers for life, and I like to read. I also write sporadically.

Mostly I like to read scifi/fantasy, but sometimes I stray into reading classics/science. I think Kindle rocks, and I'm also more appreciated at home when there isn't a new pile of books by the couch every week

I've lurked here anonymously for some days now, and I like the diversity of ideas. It is also semi-interesting that I found this place through Reddit.

What else?

Below some names to which I have positive connotations (non-exhaustive, naturally). From the list one can see how I lost my drive after Bester and started writing only authors .)

- James Clavell: Shogun
- Ernest Hemingway: The Old Man and the Sea
- Alexandre Dumas: The Count of Monte Cristo
- Herman Hesse: Siddhartha
- Glen Duncan: I, Lucifer
- Eiji Yoshikawa: Miyamoto Musashi

Science Fiction:
- Dan Simmons: Hyperion
- Orson Scott Card: Ender's Game
- Iain M. Banks: Player of Games
- Alfred Bester: The Stars My Destination
- SF Classics: Gibson, Heinlein, Asimov, Vance, Vonnegut, Dick, Vinge, Niven, Herbert, Stephenson
- Newer: Neal Asher, Alastair Reynolds, Richard Morgan, Peter Hamilton

- Roger Zelazny, China Mieville, Steven Erikson, Michael Moorcock, Robert Howard, Rothfuss

- Carl Sagan, Bill Bryson, Malcolm Gladwell

Now you know me. See you in the treehouse!

I say welcome too.

Boy looks like another varied reader, seems like there's a lot of those lately. Which isn't bad. And it also looks like I'm the only here who hasn't read "Ender's Game". Or I don't think I have... I may have read one of those a few years ago.

Anyway, happy writing but as you do even more exploring watch out for that unicorn as you probably have heard by now she can be mean.
