Anders Fager Wikipedia
Anders Fager (born in Stockholm 1964) is a Swedish horror writer. After a career as an army officer and game designer he made his debut in 2009 with the short story collection Swedish Cults (Svenska kulter) that received a most favourable review in Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter and launched Fager's career as full-time writer. Fager writes modern urban horror in a style he has repeatedly described as ”what would happen if James Ellroy took on H.P. Lovecraft”. Set in present-day Sweden, his interconnected stories form a modern part of the Cthulhu mythos with entities such as Dagon and Hastur making appearances. Fager's fictional world, known as "The Cult's World", has been made into a role playing game and is also currently being turned into a graphic novel and a theartrical play.
Anders Fager lives in Stockholm. His other works includes role playing games, a children's book and work with TV and film scripts. His novel "Kaknäs Last Tape" is set in the postapocalyptic world of the role playing game Mutant - Year Zero. Fager is currently working with audiobook publisher Storytell as well as with White Wolf.
Outside of Sweden, Fager has so far been published in Finland and France and has been introduced in the British Lovecraftiana magazine Cyäegha. A film version of Collected Swedish Cults is being developed by director-team Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein.Novellpris 2009, for the short story "Mormors resa" (Grandmother's Journey)
First Swedish writer to be nominated for the French Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire, for "Les furies de Borås".
