DrakonFin

Long-standing Finnish member of the board, joined in October 2007. A prolific and talented writer.

Contrary to popular belief, he's NOT a fan of the Draka series by S. M. Stirling. That would be stirlingdraka or some other board member.

Unsurprisingly, DrakonFin has an interest in Finnish AH scenarios.


Works

The Land of Sad Songs - A a Finnish spinoff of Protect and Survive. DrakonFin undertook the daunting task of writing this detailed and atmospheric 1980s timeline in the winter of 2011, and finished it some three years later, in 2014. Though the timeline never won any official awards, it was regularly nominated for them, and is considered one of the best spinoff timelines set in in AH.com's shared Protect and Survive Universe.

DrakonFin's previous attempt at a Finnish WWII era TL, The Lords of the North, remains unfinished.

Drakon's Lair is a thread he started, to which he contributes various AH short stories or other shorter AH narratives.

After the completion of his Finnish P&S spinoff, DrakonFin has been mostly concentrating on writing shorter fiction, from time to time. Some of the stories not featured in the Drakon's Lair anthology thread are the following:
