About meSari and Jukka, our library

We're both more or less fans of the fantastic ie. science fiction, fantasy, magic realism and the like. Sari is really into WW1, atomic bombs and music, while Jukka tries to explain to people his fondness for pulp, military-sf and new weird. We're both active in Finnish fandom, and Jukka was one of the main organisers of Finncon 2009 (and Finncon 2006, for that matter). Jukka is also the Fan Guest of Honour of Eurocon 2011 in Stockholm. Wahey!

Jukka buys too many books and manages to read far too few of those, while Sari reads too many books and is surprisingly unable to find anything to read from our library.

Heh. I began with entering special collections which we wanted to keep track on and use for finding others with a similar interest. That basically meant Vance, Wodehouse, and books of Celtic interest. After that I am entering them in the order they are shelved. That is:

Books and library science
General or mixed contents
Religion
Philosophy and psychology
Education
Linguistics
History of literature
Tolkieniana
General fiction A-Ö
Drama
Poetry and verse
Children's and young adults' fiction in Swedish
Children's and young adults' fiction in English
Fiction in other languages
Comics and graphic novels
Arts, film and theatre
Archeology
History
Biography and genealogy
Ethnology and anthropology
Geography and travel
Politics and society
Technology, industry and communication
Economy and trade
Food and drink
Games, sports and hobbies
Militaria
Mathematics
Natural Sciences
Medicine
Musicology

Interspersed with recent acquisitions. Last week, we received a couple of bags with fantasy and Celtica from a friend who died. I suppose that batched seemed incongruent.

Friends,

Are you done cataloging your backlog? I assume you are, considering the figure seems a reasonable approximation of the number of books you own. (The reason I wonder is whether I should think "Ooh, have you just bought that one!" or not when I see you have added a book.

Thanks, I sort of thought the Bester was either The Stars My Destination or The Demolished man, but alas, I don't read any language but English.

I see your translation listed on Ben Rosenbaum's web page! It is great that you translated his story so it can get a wider audience and a pity he did not win the Hugo last year for "Biographical Notes to 'A Discourse on the Nature of Causality, with Air-Planes' by Benjamin Rosenbaum". Luckily for me, I live in the Washington DC area and so does he, so I get to see him at local conventions occasionally. If you ever get a chance, go to one of his readings, which he does quite well.
I clicked on your profile because I also have Benjamin Rosenbaums _Other Cities_. Where did you pick up your copy? I found out about this chapbook when Ben read some stories at a World Fantasy Convention in Washington, DC. I really like his stuff!

Is the copy of Alfred Bester you have in Finnish (Määränpäänä Tähdet)? Does a lot of English science fiction and fantasy get translated in Finnish? My husband was sent a copy of a Ray Bradbury book in Swedish and the fan who sent it said very little science fiction was being translated into Swedish: she read most recent books in English.
