Sagt om ”Broder själ, syster flamma”/Comments about ”Brother soul, sister flame”
"It feels very credible in its description of how different values and beliefs mercilessly collide and how xenophobia and ignorance flourishes."
"It's a skilfully composed novel that deserves praise."
"... the violent opening doesn't prevent the build-up towards an even more intense end."
Åsa Böker (author of "Nordland"):
"It's a fantasy – but it's so much more! A reality-fantasy! A brutal depiction of real life, set in a fantasy world. [...] I think it's a magnificent work of literature."
"This is a well processed novel, written with commitment."
Amanda Franzén, lecteur
"One of the best books I've read in a long time. And definitely the best looking."

Did someone say my name?
Kaj Karlsson, winner of this years Indie Book Awards, kindly mentioned me in a post on his blog: http://www.aldabergr.se/parsifal-direktivet/1a-i-indie-book-awards-2014.html/ There is also a nice picture.

A question of Prize

Glory to the brave! Honour to the brave!
This is what it looks like when a self-published author wins third price for his novel. To his left, first price winner Kaj Karlsson and second price winner Lars Ström.
In Gothenburg. Nervous like hell for tomorrow. I simply loath crowds and social attention. On the other hand: This could be my fifteen seconds of something related to fame. More to follow.
A black hole of my very own
Here I go again. Down. Dark. Shattered. I wish I knew why this comes over me. I shouldn’t be depressed, not now: We’re going to Gothenburg for the annual book fair (and for a reason so positive that I’m not … Fortsätt läsa
