You get my heartfelt thanks, and I'll create backer-only content once a month, mostly in the form of short stories and chapters of my detective novel.  

What A Wonderful World

  • Access to backer-only content
  • I'll write you a short poem in either Finnish or English every month, if you request it 


Like Bertolt Brecht said, first comes eating, then comes morality. Or something like that. 

I live below the poverty line in the pre-apocalyptic hellscape which is Finland under a right-wing government. So I need to find new ways to finance my suits, ties and good wines and also I need to finance my way out of having politics way too far out for me to actually ever get a job in today's atmosphere. 

What I am working on: a novel. It's a crummy detective novel with a distinct political bent, in the best Nordic Crime tradition. Think of Sjöwall/Wahlöö with a serious dose of Kropotkin instead of Marx. It's not going to be as good, but I think it can still be interesting. 

Just kidding, I actually finished that novel already and I am now working towards my next one.


But since you possible backers probably want something that's going to be done sooner than that, here's my offer. At least one chapter of a novel-in-progress per month. Blog posts whenever I got something to write about. 

Note that I write in both English and Finnish.
