Anders Fager

Anders Fager was born 57 years ago in Stockholm. Nobody cared much at that point.

Young Fager survived punk rock, role-playing games, and an army career. Twelve years ago Fager made his debut as a writer with “Swedish Cults”, a collection of horror stories that managed to merge hard-boiled prose with kitchen-sink realism and cosmic horror in a spectacular way. Fager has since written three more short story collections, three novels, and an audiobook. He has also written for games, film, and tv, as well as a graphic novel and a children’s book. (The last two with artist Daniel Tholin.) He has been published in Italian, French, and Finish and next spring he will be released in English and as well. R/C wants Fager’s universe transferred to the screen.

Today Anders Fager is considered one of the foremost interpreters of what is called “Lovecraftian horror”. He is the dark secret of Swedish horror, scarier than John Ajvide Lindqvist, and unable to smile like Mats Strandberg. He is erotic, neurotic, and poetic and has taken the modern horror story into a dark beyond. Will you follow him?
