Anne Leinonen

 Anne Leinonen (b.1973) is a multiple-award winning prominent author, tutor, and editor of Finnish science fiction and fantasy. Her short stories have been published in magazines and anthologies and they have won several Atorox awards (voted for by the fandom). She moves fluently between science fiction and fantasy. Her texts deal with themes of otherness and unfamiliarity, as well as the problems between a community and the individual. Nature plays an important part in her work, as a vehicle for the story, the stage where the action takes place, and on a symbolic level. Leinonen writes tight prose with no superficial descriptions. Instead, she takes her readers right into the middle of the events and the lives of her characters. The way she uses language displays talent and uniqueness
