Laura Luotola (b. 1976) is an author and a publisher. Luotola’s debut novel, The Sphere – The Cities and Return, was published in 2016 by her own company Iris Kustannus – Iris Publishing. A sample in English is available now, masterly translated by Hilkka Pekkanen. The trilogy will be completed in October 2022 when the last part, The Sphere – The Project, will be out.
The Sphere is an epic science fantasy trilogy. It is an utterly original combination of cyberpunkish dystopian sci-fi flavored with magic and fantasy. The critics have praised Luotola’s skills in creating a strikingly convincing imaginary world rich in details, a spellbinding atmosphere and complex characters.
Luotola holds a MA in Finnish Literature and a BA in Restoration. She works as a full-time writer.
