Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Petteri's interest towards speculative fiction started at the ripe age of eight, when he found out about Tarzan of Edgar Rice Burroughs and thus entered a lifetime of reading dashing adventures in far away, even impossible locations.

In his teens he started to play tabletop role-playing games, a hobby that has strongly influenced his writing. He dabbles with both playing and designing games.

His fiction mainly consists of short stories, some of which have been published in Finnish genre magazines. He published his first novel, "Kaukamoinen" in 2013 and translated it as an indie translation project on the same year. Resulting "The Fargoer" is his only internationally published novel so far.

Petteri's writing is heavily influenced by pulp fantasy writers such as Robert E. Howard, as well as Finnish myths and legends of old, but he doesn't shun away from science fiction either. He continues to write in various projects, which consist of a role-playing game called "Tales of Entropy" to be published in 2017 and a project "Writing with Games", a venture in combining story-gaming with fiction writing.

Petteri is a software designer by trade. He lives in Central Finland with his family and enjoys martial arts when he has time in his super-busy schedule.

Von Monika Simon VINE-PRODUKTTESTER am 9. Juli 2015
Format: Taschenbuch
Fargoer is a short (just over 200 pages) novel set in the very distant past, in a very distant land, somewhere up in the north. How far north and where exactly remains unclear. The fact that there are swords, long ships, Vikings, and Christians gives it a sense of time and place. In this strange world the story of Vierra, the Fargoer, a woman of destiny, is set. The novel is about her adventures and journeys in this dangerous world.

The tale is told in rather unusual style. Partly it reminded me of a long folk tale, partly it is an adventure story. The exotic and strange locations, a very different culture and mythology are all fascinating to read about. But it is an oddly disjointed tale, recounting different episodes of Vierra's life that come to a abrupt end, usually moving on just when I got really interested in what was happening. Perhaps this is the point of the story. However this style prevented me from really getting involved in the tale or the characters and left me dissatisfied.

For me reading the book was an odd mix of being for a while drawn into the story only to find myself 'thrown out' again.

Amazing book!

What attracted me the most to Fargoer is the development of new and dynamic characters in each 'episode'. Besides the Finnish atmosphere that's spread throughout the book, the reader will experience new adventures with new characters and ups and downs.

While reading the book, I couldn't help myself but become Vierra, the main character in the book, and discover myself in the journey through nature and of course through the beautiful landscape of the north. I really love how nature is explained beautifully in the book; the explanations are not too long but not too short either so the reader can expand the horizon of his/her imagination and this is another amazing highlight!

I wish the book was longer but that's just my opinion :D There were lots of open-ends and this is of course a good thing; it keeps the reader wonder what will happen most of the times. Great story, great characters.

A must-have for every nature/Finland/fantasy novel fan!

Mystical, captivating and lively, these short stories are based on some lovable folklore storylines of the North, characters that are deeply embedded in the people's minds, together with strong feelings and passionate interactions between legendary humans.
Tons of wisdom could be rediscovered throughout the pages of the whole Fargoer sequence. The language is authentic and colourful, style is unique, thus rendering this read really pleasurable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Breathtaking 1. Dezember 2014
Von Simone Beaudelaire - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This tale of legend and destiny combines expert research with a storytelling style that perfectly suits the content.
In short, this is the tale of Vierra, a Finnish Viking from what must be a prehistoric or early historic period. Fate deals her an unfortunate hand and she is forced to make her way through suffering, hardship and pain, with only her wits to rely on, as she attempts to return home from her journeys.
I noted some of the other reviews complained about the writing style of this piece, but I disagree with their conclusion. I feel that, while a modern story might benefit from modern storytelling conventions, the ancient material in this book requires a more historic tone. In fact, Fargoer reads like a series of stories one might enjoy around the campfire, which enhances, rather than detracting from the tale.
While the ending might not resolve the plot entirely, it is a resolution of sorts, and the author is quick to point out that another volume is in the works. I, for one, will be standing in line to buy a copy.
Well done, Mr. Hannila. You brought a snippet of history to life.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Novel About Destiny 7. September 2014
Von WriterbeesBookReviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Set in the forests of Northern Europe, Fargoer: A Viking Age Tale describes the life of Vierra, a tribeswoman of the Kainu, beginning with her ascension into womanhood. While her own tribal society is matriarchal, she is pitted against both men and spirits as she progresses through the years to her ultimate destiny.

This tale is delivered in an epic style, merging the mythologies of Scandinavia with fantasy, reminding me of stories from the spoken word traditions that place the main characters in situations to test their strength and determination against powerful opposing forces.

Constructed from a string of short stories, similar in style to Martian Chronicles by Bradbury, the novel leads us through the journey of Vierra, from her prepubescent years living with her chieftain aunt and cousin into the life of a quiet hunter, an outsider even among her own tribe. Throughout her life's trials and triumphs, we are introduced to a variety of spirit identities. We observe the rituals and rites of her people contrasted with those of the Vikings and other tribes who appear in the narrative. The work is sprinkled with poetic chants and songs.

As I looked through other reviews of Fargoer, I noticed that some readers complained that the writing was boring, as if there was not enough action from page-to-page to evoke their interest. I found the opposite to be true, with almost every detail of this book drawing my attention, down to the very last description of the tribal huts. Action is important in any adventure: if the destination were the only purpose of writing, then there would be no point in telling a story at all. What is a story without setting a scene? - describing the landscape, the clothes, the homes of the characters. In between the bursts of exterior action, we need to dwell inside the characters thoughts, to see how the events affect their personalities, to understand how those actions affect us as the readers. To understand her destiny, Vierra must accept her actions and her own justification for each one. The reader is prompted to consider how he or she might handle those same events.

This novel evenly disperses meaningful description of the tribal lands and traditions with the swift fighting action.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Very realistic 26. Mai 2015
Von Teresa H. Garcia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a story that does not romanticize the past, but lays it out there. A whole people fight to survive and Vierra is a symbol of that spirit. She is the Wild Woman archetype, strong in and of herself. She's far from perfect and this is what makes her believable. After she has crumbled she picks herself back up once the right situation gives her that tiny breath she needed to regain herself. I look forward to the rest of the story of the Fargoer.

The violence was handled well, and though strong and detailed it was not over detailed. There was only enough to move the plot and show how desperate the struggle truly was for her. Likewise, although sex and rape were touched on we were not given a play by play, and thus it stayed within the guidelines I have to watch for books that I take to the library I volunteer with to expose people to writers they might enjoy. There were parts that had some people withdrawing from a reading session, but the story had Vikings in it... unromanticized... thus they were ostensibly braced.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Stepping back into time 29. Oktober 2013
Von L.F.Falconer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A clever mix of history, legend, and the metaphysical realm of spirituality, "Fargoer" is a remarkable adventure surrounding the life of Viera, a strong woman broken, only to rebound ever stronger through her experience and compassionate heart. The book immediately draws the reader into a past world with its imagery and historic details beautifully rendered in a sophisticated yet simplistic style which only adds to the story's flavor.

I only found a few disappointments with this book. All too often I felt I was being rushed along. I felt as if too many parts of the story were missing. I would have liked to have seen more expansion upon Viera's adolescence and her relationships with Aure and Rika, as well as her husband and son. These were highly important relationships in her life and to have explored them a little more deeply could have served to develop Viera into a fuller, more well-rounded character. I also believe her character development could have benefitted still more if her time as a Viking slave had been expounded, rather than skimmed over as a mere summation--to show how extreme circumstances could cause such a powerful woman to lose her will and her way. And when I finally reached the book's end, I sat back in sheer frustration because--yeah--I wanted more! I knew Viera's journey was far from over and I wasn't ready to stop reading about it.

I anxiously await the continuation of this saga.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting tale 26. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The Fargoer is a tale of the violent, dark era of a northern world. It is full of mystic rituals and ancient lore, where strength and courage is honored above all else. Two opposing worlds collide and on one side are the northern tribes of Kainu, dominated by female warriors that rule with sorcery and verse. The other is the southern, brutal battle scarred Vikings, that understand two needs in their life, strength & blood. It was inevitable that a colliding of these cultures would lead to sadness, death & destruction.

Struggling within this savage background are main characters Vierra & her cousin Aure. Vierras journey as the Fargoer has short snatches of happiness with large helpings of trials & hardship, to learn her life's lesson, Wisdom. Aure became chief of her village & eventually learnt her life lesson too late, that of humility.

The verses within this story are beautifully crafted and suit each scenario. I would like to see the end verse at the beginning of the book, a great insight how this world came to be. A great story easy to read & follow. However more depth is required to enhance the simplicity of the current story line & improve growth to main and supporting characters
