Re: Meanwhile in Sweden...

TA and Ernst Billgren ended up making it to the semifinal of På spåret , in case anyone cares. On a related note, JAL will be participating in the similar quiz show Alla mot alla with singer Nina Persson starting on March 22. I've never watched said show, but now I might have to find some time to wa...

New TV adaptation ordered by Showtime

http://johnajvidelindqvist.com/article.php?id=81 My translation: Let the Right One In has been filmed twice before. 2008 saw the release of Tomas Alfredson's version, and two years later came the American remake. Now it's time again. This time it's the American TV network Showtime making their versi...

Possible inspiration for Ávila

At the 2018 Gothenburg Book Fair, JAL was interviewed by Lärarpodden (a podcast aimed at Swedish school teachers) about his then-recently released book Misslyckas igen, misslyckas bättre and his writing methods. At the 11:15 mark, he says this: Intervjuare: Har du haft nån lärare som har betytt nånt...

Re: Theory about the infection

Well, my opinion is that while the universe of What Kept You So Long? includes the events of LtROI, the opposite is not true. It's a unidirectional relation. [...] On a more prosaic level, the narrative of LtROI required an incubation time of about a couple of days, while What Kept You So Long? nee...

Theory about the infection

I've seen some discussion here about how the infection in What Kept You So Long? seems to be different and less severe than the infection portrayed in LTROI: WKYSL's narrator Tompa went for a whole year after he was infected before he had to start drinking blood, he's able to go for much longer peri...

Re: History Lesson

Do you write in Swedish and translate it to English, like I do? Although I consider myself quite fluent in English, I write my fan fiction in Swedish since I believe using my native tongue improves my writing. Then I use Google Translate, mostly to save me from a lot of typing, but also to get sugg...

Re: History Lesson

Great story siggdalos! I thought the last paragraph was a bit too silly given the setting, but the rest was very well done. One of the things that made the book special, to me, was the dialogue between Eli and Oskar. How they in many respects were totally normal kids, and in others Eli especially, ...

History Lesson

Here goes: my first fan fiction submission. Been sitting on this for a while and editing the same few parts back and forth, but I'm at a point now where I'm pretty happy with it. I wanted to briefly explore what O&E might think about the different kinds of vampire folklore that exists around the wor...

The development of Little Star (from Fail Again, Fail Better)

Around two months ago, in the thread where I compiled LTROI development info from JAL's 2018 book of notes Misslyckas igen, misslyckas bättre ("Fail again, fail better"), I wrote that I would make another thread summarizing the development notes for Little Star , following a request from CyberGhostf...
