Goranus has released two new products: The translated version of Ante Aikio’s premier novel into the Aigi Saga – Fathoms of the Fenlake, and a new mobile app Sami Myths, available for Android and iOS.
The first book of the Aigi-series, Fathoms of the Fenlake, is now out and for sale. The translation was done by a translator from Helsinki, Ville Miettinen, whose previous works include the fantasy role playing game Age of the Tempest by Mike Pohjola.
- The Sami mythology is, as a work environment, enchanting and captivating. It’s a world of its own, and far too few people have yet been introduced to it. Translating the novel and the Sami words has been an extremely pleasant task, says Miettinen.
Fathoms of the Fenlake is available as a pocket book version in print from the
-web store, and in most e-bookstores in Finland. In the future the aim is to bring it to the greater public around Europe and the world for everyone to enjoy.
- We’ll start off with getting Fenlake for sale in Finnish tourist hotspots, where most English-speaking customers may be found. We’ll be bringing it out as an e-book as soon as possible, because this format has been a ringer abroad. In the future we also aim to work with foreign publishers, Aikio says.
Goranus has also published the Sami Myths-mobile app, developed along with the Helsinki-based company Vidasoft. The app is available both in the AppStore and in Google Play.
- We wanted to bring a new and modern tool to introduce people to the Sami mythology and environs. The mobile app is a great storytelling device for this. It’s easily updateable, which means we can bring new and fresh material out to the people with ease, Aikio says.
