A new day, a new struggle

There’s been some silence here. Frankly, I haven’t had the energy to blog. The crash of Epok and the fact that my short stories will not be published probably hit me harder than I wanted to admit at the time. I … Läs mer

Bad news

Feeling good is a good thing

Four short-stories duly delivered to Epok Förlag for assessment. Bad, good, publishable? I don’t know, but it feels good. The stories are quite different. One is a psychological horror story inspired by Lovecraft; another tells the tale of young man who … Läs mer
