Marko Susimetsä is a Finnish historical fiction, sci-fi and science writer. He has got a PhD in Adult Education and is interested in human motivation. He has written several professional research papers and articles about learning motivation, internationalisation and management and he teaches education science courses to vocational teachers.

Marko is currently co-authoring a fully original historical fiction novel set in the 17th century. He's also published short stories and novellas in magazines and anthologies.

He enjoys reading history and historical fiction, especially that set in the 17th century, but does take an occasional look at science fiction and fantasy as well.

I've always been a fan of swashbucklers and historical adventure, but I have to admit that my enthusiasm is targeted more to the 17th century than the early 19th - and thus all the various retellings and other stories of Zorro don't attract my attention so much. But when I browsed the sale of used books at the local library and found Isabel Allende's Zorro available for a single euro, I decided...

I've read a lot of pulp stories, but I recently realised that I'm mostly familiar with male authors. Therefore, I took it upon myself to read C.L. Mooren Jirel of Joiry collection which reprints stories that were originally released in the Weird Tale ...more
Marko and 8 other people liked Steve's review of Jirel of Joiry:
Jirel of Joiry by C.L. Moore
"I may bump this up a star (because GR lacks half stars). The first story (a novella), "Black God's Kiss," is a classic that I highly recommend. It has a kind of weirdness that reminds me of Dante and Machen. The second story, "Black God's Shadow,"..." Read more of this review »

The end of a curious trilogy from Pierre Pevel. The dragons are all-pervasive this time around and the main heroes are even more two-dimensional than thus far, each going their own way at the mercy of the plot. The novel actually consists of four alm ...more

Plato
“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”
Plato, The Symposium

Douglas Adams
“I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Guy Endore
“But there was a strange shame here that he could not overcome. Oh, the terrible disgrace, the ignominy of it—possessing a mythical monster in one’s own family, in this age of science and enlightenment!”
Guy Endore, The Werewolf of Paris

Guy Endore
“A real politician, and these were real politicians, never betrays his country to an outsider. He betrays it to himself. He is the enemy within.”
Guy Endore, The Werewolf of Paris

Friedrich Schiller
“Man only plays when he is in the fullest sense of the word a human being, and he is only fully a human being when he plays”
Friedrich von Schiller
