Look forward to reading more from you.
I'll break open the story and tell you what is there. Then, like the others that have fallen out onto the sand, I will finish with it, and the wind will take it away.

And next Christmas I hope we'll get another present.
Drakkar you got your wish!
Amazing a year has passed! Merry Christmas John.
Looking forward to Let the Old Dreams Die, and I have to say that I find the idea of zombies shuffling to Brother Louie or Geronimo's Cadillac to be very intriguing to say the least

Im both saddened and glad the day I joined this community.
Glad that I'm here, and sad that I missed so much that has already happened.
Here's hoping for another year for this community.
Merry Christmas all!

John, I think it more accurate to think of us as being precisely what the forum's name suggests: Infected. You've crafted a work of fiction that transfixes and mystifies us endlessly. I seriously can't wait for more of your work to appear in English (because I am unfortunately too old to learn new languages)!

Happy Christmas. I've been absent for a while and it's very nice to know the forum is still active. I just re-read Let The Right One In and I was transfixed again -- read it in one lazy, snowy day.

I have never been more proud about being an Infected
. I am so going to buy Let the Old Dreams Die when it comes out

As for myself I have just finished my novel ”Tjärven” which is a convenional zombie novel of 180 pages which I wrote in 35 days just to see if I could. Extremely violent, more blood than in Little Star and with a ”soundtrack” mostly consisting of Modern Talking.
(Isn´t that just the perfect match? Zombies and Modern Talking.)
You remember Modern Talking! I was dancing to Modern Talking then. Zombies and Modern Talking? I would agree with you. PERFECT!
Oh yes. Merry Christmas.

God Yul to you and all your family and friends, Mr Lindqvist, you are "The Man"!
Thank you for LDRKI and all your other fantastic tales, you have made a fan for life of me and probably many more of us.
Keep the beautiful horror coming!

Season's Greetings to you, John-mon. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Glad Noel, Cool Yule, and so on. Thanks for remembering us humble Infected.
I'm just thinking out loud here, but I'm wondering: English is spoken much more widely around the world than probably any other language. In fact, English is probably closer to a universal language than any other in history. That being the case, and since John Lindqvist speaks and writes excellent English, I'm wondering if at some point -- as he gains a worldwide audience -- if the author might benefit from writing his books in English rather than his native Swedish. It seems to me that his books would get a wider circulation more quickly if that were the case. Any thoughts?
