I live and work in Malmö, Sweden. I’ve published prose and poetry in Swedish since 2002, with publications in journals like Jules Verne-magasinet and Lyrikvännen. My English publication history includes Weird Tales,, Lightspeed Magazine and the anthologies Steampunk Revolution and The Time-Travelers Almanac. My 2012 short story collection Jagannath won the Crawford Memorial Award in 2013 and was shortlisted for the Tiptree Award and World Fantasy Award. One of the stories, “Augusta Prima”, won the SF & Fantasy Translation Award.

When not writing, I do freelance work as a creative writing teacher, manuscript coach and translator (and can be hired, too, although mostly in Swedish). And when not doing that, I geek out on things like forteana, surrealism, games (from board- to video- to roleplaying- to LARP), subversive cross-stitching and folklore.
