Third chapter of “The Wages of Their Deeds” out today!

You know what the best thing is about being a Literature student, besides the awesomeness of being able to say that yes, I really am supposed to spend all day doing nothing but reading and writing? It’s all the great ideas you get for new stories. Do you know what the worst thing is? That with all that reading and writing I’m supposed to be doing, I have very little time to be writing anything else.

And that’s why I decided to do “The Wages of Their Deeds” as a serial novellette. Having a schedule sets goals, and keeps me working on the story. It keeps me focused, and keeps me from doing what I normally do – which is to start writing the moment I get an idea, only to move on to the next story, as soon as a shiny, new spark of inspiration comes along. And I’m glad, because I really like these characters, and this story, and I hope you will, too.

It’s Sunday, which of course means that the third chapter is out today, and you can find it here, or look for it in in the menu, under “The Stories”. As always, I’ll be happy to hear from anyone who might feel inclined to leave a comment on this post or the chapter, but above all, I hope you will enjoy the story!

Oh, and with Halloween and Allhelgona, the zombies are out in full force. Take care not to whack any living people in the head – people who dress up as zombies are people too, (even though they are evil).

Second chapter of “The Wages of Their Deeds” out today!

Just wanted to tell you that Chapter 2 of my science fiction story, “The Wages of Their Deeds” has been published. There’s a little more action in this one, and hopefully, you’ll start to get a better understanding of the world and the characters in it.

I hope you like it, and if you have any opinons on the story or the site in genenral, leave a comment! I’ll be happy to hear from you.

First chapter of a new science fiction story posted!

Just a quick note to tell you that I have posted the first chapter of a serialized novelette I’ve been working on.

Short aside: Is it really a novelette? Or is it a novella? I can’t get the definitions straight, which should probably be embarrassing for a Literature student, but what can I say? I apparently have no shame. But if anyone has any insights as to the genre definition, please share! I am willing, and eager, to learn from the wielders of superior knowledge.

So, about the story. It’s a science fiction story called The Wages of Their Deeds. It is a story about a man called Stranger, who was born to rule, but who gave up his birthright after a shocking act of violence forced him to leave his father’s palace, his station and his name behind.

It’s a story about clashing cultures in a society where the rule of law leaves much to be desired of justice, and about how difficult it can be to hold true to your own ideals.

It is also a story about friendship, and about making your own way in life, and bearing the consequences of your actions.

The story will be posted in installments, I’m thinking one chapter every week, on Sundays. Currently, it’s looking to be eleven or twelve chapters long, but that is subject to some change, as I am still in the middle of the editing process.

You can find it under “The Stories”, “Fiction in English”, “The Wages of Their Deeds”, or click here.

I hope you’ll check it out and even more than that, I hope you’ll like it!


New logo, and first short story posted!

Do you like the new logo? I drew it myself. I think it looks pretty good, though there’s something slightly misshapen about that poor raven that makes me wonder if, maybe, it’s some sort of dangerous mutant. If so, I figured it ought to fit in well around here, so I’m leaving it be.

Also, I published the first of the short stories yesterday! It’s called “En dag till”, and it’s an ominous little postapocalyptic story in Swedish. You can find it, as well as a slightly longer description, under “The Stories” menu. And yes, I’m aware I am missing a “the” in that sentence, but it just sounded too stupid to write.


What is this blog about?

The short answer is, it isn’t really a blog at all. Yes, I may occasionally write about books, writing and the stuff they teach me at school (I’m a University student, studying Literature and Creative Writing).

However, the main purpose of this site is to give me a venue for publishing my fiction. There will be short stories in English and in Swedish, perhaps some serialized novellas and possibly even some poems. And it will be free.

I write in several genres, and some of the stories are mixed genre works, but most of what I write has a speculative aspect to it. I don’t write pure romance, although some of my fiction does have romantic subplots. I don’t write chidren’s or YA stories, although some of my characters happen to be young adults.

I’m also very interested in Psychology, Sociology and History, and I have been known to occasionally obsess about the many-and-varied ways in which the world might come to a messy and disastruous end. Aspects of these interests and preoccupations will show through in various stories, so if you share them, you might want to give my fiction a try. The posted short stories and chapters will be fairly short, so if you hate it, you won’t have wasted much time.

If you’ve stuck with me this far, thank you for reading, and I hope you’ll be back to check out some of my writing.
