Apart from the news that nightrider revealed here
, John has also written in his blog
about the second volume of the trilogy started with Himmelstrand. The book is to be called Rörelsen
(the Movement), which alludes to the Social Democratic party. The new book is a prequel to Himmelstrand, and involves the author himself, or a version of him, as he writes. It is set in the early 1980s, when JAL was young, practised magic in the streets, and lived in a house that is next to the Brunkeberg tunnel. This is a pedestrian tunnel in Stockholm, and plays a significant role in Himmelstrand. Furthermore it is near the place where Olof Palme, the leader of the Social Democratic party and the Swedish prime minister, was shot down.
The book is, John writes, like virtually all his works about "our relation to the other"
. "How far we are willing to go to break loose from our Earth bound conditions to get in contact with something that allows us to transcend."
It will be in the book stores in fall, if everything goes as planned.
