Mikko Rauhala is a bilingual Finnish science fiction author. Informed by both his master’s degree in intelligent systems and a transhumanist background, he’s most at home in hard science fiction settings, where he enjoys taking an eccentric premise and bringing it to its logical conclusion. As befits a Finn, his plot-driven narrative is often seasoned with a touch of dark, dry humor. Rauhala’s credits include co‑authoring Infinite Metropolis (Aurelia Leo, 2020) and “Rekindled” in Best Vegan SFF of 2020 (Metaphorosis, 2021).
