A modern classic of Scandinavian horror that has been called 'Swedish Lovecraft on acid', available in English at last!

Forget everything you think you know about Sweden. Anders Fager's stories reveal his native land as a place where dark and unimaginable things happen. Where deep in the woods grisly sacrifices are made to ancient and monstrous deities during blood-drenched orgies. Where two young people's road trip to visit their grandmother takes a turn for the bizarre and nightmarish. Where a woman's comfortable middle-class life is suddenly upended when her boyfriend develops a mysterious illness that leaves him with a constant erection and speaking in strange tongues. Where an avant garde artist discovers the veil that separates Stockholm from the shadowy city of Carcosa.

Readers raved about Anders Fager's entry in the multi-award-nominated The Valancourt Book of World Horror Stories, and now Valancourt is pleased to present the first-ever complete English translation of the author's first collection, already an underground phenomenon in Sweden, France, and Italy and a cornerstone of modern Scandinavian horror.

About the Author

Anders Fager was born in 1964 in Stockholm. After a career as an army officer, punk rocker, and game designer he rather accidentally turned to writing full time in 2009, when he released his first volume of Lovecraftian short stories, Svenska kulter [Swedish Cults]. The book was a critical success and a hit with readers and led to an expanded version, Samlade Svenska kulter [Collected Swedish Cults] in 2011. His work has so far been published in Finland, Italy, and France, where he became the only Swedish writer ever to have been nominated for the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire. He has written six novels, the acclaimed graphic novel The Crows (with artist Peter Bergting) as well as material for role-playing games such as Kult and Tales from the Loop. He lives in Stockholm with a tank full of fish and is very happily married.
