Other Guests

Along with the Guests of Honor, Finncon has several other authors participating in the program, both from Finland and abroad. Here is a list of all the authors in the program.

Martha Hubbard lives on an island in the North Baltic. A place of strange gods, mysteries, tragedies and wonder, it provides the perfect bed-rock for a writer of dark fantasy. Previously she has been a teacher, cook, stage manager & drama-turg, a parking lot company book-keeper and a community development worker. Her stories have appeared in the Innsmouth Free Press’ anthologies, Historical Lovecraft, Candle in the Attic Window and Future Lovecraft.

Tom Crosshill‘s fiction has been nominated for the Nebula Award, the Latvian Annual Literature Award, and has appeared in venues such as Clarkesworld, Beneath Ceaseless Skies and Lightspeed. After many years spent in Oregon and New York, he currently lives in his native Latvia. In the past, he has operated a nuclear reactor, translated books and worked in a zinc mine, among other things.
