About Petteri Hannila

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

In my teens I started to play tabletop role-playing games, a hobby that has strongly influenced my writing. Nowadays I dabble with both playing and designing games.

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

My writing is heavily influenced by pulp fantasy writers such as Robert E. Howard, as well as Finnish myths and legends of old, but I don't shun away from science fiction either.

I 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.

I am a software designer by trade, yet when I entered into indie publishing I wanted to learn how to create the book layouts by myself. After my brother founded Creativia, I happily joined in and have, when writing this, created layouts for over 400 books both in electronic and paper versions.

I live in Central Finland with my family and enjoy martial arts when I have time in my super-busy schedule.

Review by: THG StarDragon Publishing on Jan. 13, 2013 :
It has been a long time since I've had the pleasure of reading a story poem. I have missed this style of poetry greatly, so I am very happy to have come across one like this.

I greatly like the way that the rhyme and meter carries the tale. It ebbs and flows with a lyrical cadence that reminded me greatly of ocean waves. I highly recommend this to anyone, after reading.
